Cannot build JMC

I think this is a bug as it should be possible to select the correct
.ini file based on the JVM you are using.

Nevertheless, you can create an alternative jmc.ini file without the
modules directives, just copy the default one and remove all the
modules stuff, then launch JMC with this option -launcher.ini jdk8.ini
(our of memory, so the actual option may be slightly different but
this should get you closer).
