in the past, i feel like java has been installed such that a symlink
/usr/lib64/java -> /usr/lib64/jdk-$VERSION but now it seems to be the
opposite... i was hoping to keep both jdk8 and jdk7 installed so i can
more easily switch between them:


( cd $PKG/usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX}
  mv ${PRGNAM}${DVER} java
  ln -sf java ${PRGNAM}${DVER}

is this the preferred method now or was this a mistake? for now i'm
forced to uninstall jdk8 and use an untarred jdk8 on my home
