Patch for dev-java/jlex-1.2.6-r1 to add a jlex launcher

The current ebuild of jlex does only install the jlex.jar (and optionally the source and some documentation). I suggest to call java-pkg_dolauncher within the ebuild in order to create a jlex launcher that can be easily be used from command line.

I have tested the attached patch successfully on my system.
