[fedora-java] Mending the Java native library mess before F10

I was asked to make sure that tanukiwrapper and libreadline-java were up
to date for F10.
What I found is that there is no consistent policy for either .so
location or .jar location for Java packages in Fedora. Here are some
I believe that libreadline-java was meant to be the model for the JNI
policy, but the problem is that jpackage-utils (build-classpath) does
not seem to be updated to work with the new jar location. NB: I tested
on F9, so if this has changed, let me know.
We have very little time to do anything about this before the F10
freeze, so I suggest we take the path of least-resistance, e.g., we have
to move libreadline-java back since we would not be able to update all
the packages and the tools and make sure that they work in time for F10.
