[messages] [Technical Support & Bugs] VASSAL ERROR -- icon import on source compile

There is a bug in the current software that prevents VASSAL from being
run after it is compiled from the command-line. The fix is as follows:


Replace the references to IMAGE_DIR in this file with ICON_DIR, most
importantly in the function initVassalIconFamilys(). In its present
state, VASSAL is searching for icons in the "images/" subfolder rather
than in the "icons/" subfolder where they are located. A temporary
workaround is to put the icons subfolder into a JAR: the software
appears to find the icons by default when they are distributed as part
of a jar.
