Updated BLFS to JDK-126.96.36.199 source and binary.

Cool, cool, cool. I was gonna update that because there are some JDK6
issues yet, see below.

IIRC, the sed is not necessary anymore since we don't care which head
program we use. The instructions that needed the modification have long
since been removed (bypass the license agreement). I had completely
forgotten the why and had missed it in last review. I do know for
certain that it's not needed in the new version so they have already
been removed from the pending JDK6u1 instructions.
BTW, an update on that. JDK6 can't go in yet due to the JDBC4 changes
WRT hsqldb (from OOo) and probably bdb too (haven't checked). Most
upstream was building against b88 or b93 (can't recall), and Sun pulled
the EOU features from derby (java db) shortly before release, so not
much help yet from the package maintainers. Fop and Subversion build OK,
as do a couple of other packages who's names slip my mind, but I haven't
tested with any _real_ use other than the plugin and compiler. I did
kick out a PDF BLFS book with FOP-93? and all looked well. Also, one of
the test suites had to be run in a windowed environment, I think FOP but
not sure. No time to check right now, but will get back soon.
