OpenJDK 8

I have prepared openjdk8 packages, so we finally have Java 8 in PLD.
We used to use IcedTea to build Java 7 from OpenJDK7 source and a few
other projects, but OpenJDK8 is more self-contained and could be built
directly. That causes package name change, but it may also mean, that
the new packages are missing something.

Please test the new openjdk8-* packages with your favorite Java software
and let me know if everything works as expected. 'openjdk8' should
replace 'icedtea7' in PLD soon.
