Why demo/sample before launchers?

Hi Kelly

I noticed that in jdk build, demo and sample are before launchers. In a 
jdk-only build, JDK_IMPORT_PATH's javac is used. Otherwise, BOOTDIR's 
javac using javac.jar built from langtools is used. Why not build 
launchers first and use the brand new javac to compile demo/sample?
