Update pack200 project layout and ensure 1.4 compatibility

                 Key: HARMONY-2957
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-2957
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Classlib
            Reporter: Alex Blewitt
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: pack200-project.patch

This patch adds support for the Eclipse project to be based on 1.4 compatibility, rather than
1.5 compatibility. I've split the Java source into two; src/main/java and src/main/java5 --
the latter needs to be compiled with a 1.5 system, the former with a 1.4 system. I've amended
the build.xml appropriately to have multiple targets in the appropriate sections, and tested
it out (though I've had to hack the build to get it to work on Mac OS X).

I'm pretty sure there's a cleaner way of adding source folders than I've done, but I'm open
to suggestions. The src/main/java needs to be compiled on a 1.4 system, and the src/main/java5
needs to be compiled on a 1.5 (or with 1.5 support, anyway). To make life easier for an Eclipse
developer working on the project in 1.4 mode, the java5 has been exported to pack200-java5.jar
and included in with the patch (though, for some reason, the diff tool doesn't like binary
files so I'm having to attach it manually). 

I've fixed the SegmentTest; I'm not sure if inheriting this again is a case of deleting the
make/excludes* files; but I've not done that in this patch. I can supply another patch if
this is the case.

I've also written a new test to ensure that the compiled class files are generated with 1.4
compatibility, which should hopefully prevent this form being inadvertently reverted in the
