I changed the buildfile to be disable the doclint by default.
doclint is the tool which breaks the build in "backward incompatible

There are lots of doclint errors in the source tree and fixing them would
require lot of time.
For fixing doclint could be enabled via -DwithDoclint=true.

Now the "build javadocs" works on my machine with Java5, Java6, Java7, Java8
and Java9.
