      Description

      In HDFS-2022 we made ant binary build libhdfs unconditionally, this is a pain for users who now need to get the native toolchain working to create a tarball to test a change, and inconsistent with common and MR (see MAPREDUCE-2559) which only build native code if a flag is passed. Let's revert to the previous behavior of requiring -Dlibhdfs be passed at build time. We could also create a new ant target that doesn't build the native code, however restoring the old behavior seems simplest.
