[kaffe] Please support javac from ant

Hello Dalibor,

Ant directly invokes com.sun.tools.javac.main.Main when compiling java
classes to bytecode. Please include such a class for compatibility with
other runtimes. In the Debian package of kaffe we include such a class
copied from java-gcj-compat.

Another issue with this is that kaffe doesn't provide a tools.jar out of
the box. It provides kaffe-classpath-tools.jar. In Debian we provide a
symlink from tools.jar to kaffe-classpath-tools.jar to make ant happy.
