    - removed 8u121 patches as they have been applied to 7u131.
    - building icedtea-sound on build/ directory 
    - replaced 'dh_strip -k' calls by dh_prep 
    - have the 'build' rule depend on 'debian/control' rule to force
      failure if debian/control gets regenerated.
    - added file 'security/blacklisted.cert' to be copied to etc dir
      (introduced by S8011402).
    - simplified build dependencies.
    - removed jtreg's xvfb-run call since icedtea takes care of calling it.

    - removed lpia arch.
    - use fonts-wqy-microhei and fonts-wqy-zenhei instead of transitional
