+1 for release flag when it is needed

I support this as I also think that current classlib build system is rather 
primitive which is easy to alter by developers locally but isn't really meant 
to be a product build system.

But the default I am sure should be debug everywhere, VM, classlib, tools 
until Harmony leaves the incubation state. This is what my patch did (if I 
didn't miss some places in classlib makefiles).

Add release switch later when it is needed. Now... is it important to have it? 
Is it necessary to build classlib even with -mpentium3? I don't think so.
