Yeah, it is confusing. That JBS issue tracked the creation of temporary 
image builder tool to use in JDK 9 until we had jlink. In jigsaw/jake 
then this image building tool has been removed and the build changed to 
create the run-time images with jlink. The Dependences section of JEP 
261 has a few words on this.
