Cannot build JMC

What system are you on?

On RHEL 8 (and 7) for example there's no bundled JFX, while there is
on Fedora. So if you are using a system where no JFX is present (any
build of OpenJDK and any Oracle JDK since 11) then you either need to
install it or patch the JFX bits out.

I think the JFX bits should be optional on JMC but we're not there yet.
