[Bug 1536] JDK source install instructions seem to be slightly incorrect.

I'm sorry that I didn't mention the install command yesterday. I remembered it 
after I went to bed last night.
When I tried 'cp -v -a j2sdk-image/* /opt/jdk/jdk-1.5.0' without the
'install -v -d /opt/jdk/jdk-1.5.0' command immediately before it,
it failed with a 'directory not found' (or something similar) error.
I had to use the 'install' command to get it to work.

Is there a reason the commands should operate differently in the
script I used as opposed to simple command line operation?
