I am working on a new version of facter. Facter needs javah for the build process.
But somehow the symlink of javah seems to be broken.

Steps to reproduce:

create a fresh arch linux systemd-nspawn containter with pacstrap, install java-environment-common in it and check /usr/bin/javah.
This task depends upon

Of course it's broken until you actually install a java environment.
javah is dead and gone with java 10, so you'd need an earlier version.
