NetBeans harness files like "app.exe" are stripped from the package in the PKGBUILD. This results in an error when packaging NetBeans Platform applications:

/usr/share/netbeans/harness/suite.xml:325: Warning: Could not find file /usr/share/netbeans/harness/launchers/app.exe to copy.
BUILD FAILED (total time: 8 seconds)

This had already been reported in 2012:  FS#28130 

The files need to be part of the installation to be able to create cross-platform distributions, see also here:

Additional info:
* Netbeans 11.03

Steps to reproduce:
* create a NetBeans Platform application
* right click project, "Package as" > "ZIP Distribution"
