I'm confused?  The stubs do not participate in the bootclasspath order,
which is defined by the properties file.

Right, they are not needed at runtime because the VM provides its own
version.  They appear there to satisfy the compile-time requirements
(and development-time visibility rules).

FYI  Our simple javac tool queries the VM it is running on to find out
the location of the kernel and other bootclasspath jars.
