        Description

        This minor installation problem can be observed on Linux installations that
        are very thin, for example the default oraclelinux:7.2 base Docker image.

        Test: Install JDK 8u144 into a very thin Linux installation, which does not
        include the "filesystem" package, but that does have the "man" package
        installed. When installation is complete, run "java -version" and "man java"
        to check installation and documentation.

        Expected: Installation completes quietly, version information is displayed,
        java man page is loaded.

        Actual: Installation appears to complete, but issues some ugly warnings, and
        the man pages are missing:
