Subject[PATCH] tools/perf: fix use of alternatives to find JDIR
When a build is run from something like a cron job, the user's $PATH is
rather minimal, of note, not including /usr/sbin in my own case. Because
of that, an automated rpm package build ultimately fails to find, because somewhere within the build, this happens...

/bin/sh: alternatives: command not found
/bin/sh: alternatives: command not found
Makefile.config:849: No openjdk development package found, please install
JDK package, e.g. openjdk-8-jdk, java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel

...and while the build continues, isn't built, and things
fall down when rpm tries to find all the %files specified. Exact same
system builds everything just fine when the job is launched from a login
shell instead of a cron job, since alternatives is in $PATH, so openjdk is
actually found.

The test required to get into this section of code actually specifies the
full path, as does a block just above it, so let's do that here too.
