RFR 8005634: TEST_BUG tools/launcher/VersionCheck.java fails version check on jdeps

The jdeps tools (recently added by 8003562) does not support '-version'. 
It uses the gnu-style '--version'. It should be excluded from 
VersionCheck.testToolVersion(), similar to the (un)pack200 tool. Long 
term we may need to re-visit this test to add support for gnu-style 
option checking, but that is a bigger issue.

The test change is to add 'jdeps' to the list of tools that do not 
support '-version'.
