The demos are built with the jdk you just created, so in theory, any change
to the built jdk would require all the demos to be rebuilt.
Not sure how it detects this 'jdk has changed', would need to look closer at it.

Try also setting DEV_ONLY=true. I think these are tied together for some
historic reason.
