The logic in this file (hotspot/test/Makefile) is very similar to that 
of jdk/test/Makefile, as a matter of fact some of it has been copy 
pasted. It would be nice if the output dir paths would be set up the 
same way in both cases, to avoid confusion and all of that.

It would be even better to share the logic all together to avoid 
duplication, but that's a separate issue.
