This means the knowledge of which targets required shared_library_permissions has been lost. The shared_library_permissions target could be run unconditionally as part of prep but I am uncertain if this is reasonable. Alternatives?

Output will now be written to jdk/testoutput and this directory has been added to the .hgignore. Since most people are expected to use only the root repo make which sets ALT_OUTPUTDIR it is not expected that this change will make any difference for most users.
