If Chris still has the logs of its latest mass rebuild I think we could
easily identify the affected packaged by grepping the message "Warning:
The javah tool is planned to be removed".

If there is no hurry to remove javah I suggest waiting until JDK 12 to
do so, this would increase our chances to include JDK 11 in the next
Debian release.
