Please review this change for jdk9.
Until now, JPRT has used a rather hacky workaround when building using
the new makefiles (build-infra). A special maketarget "bridgebuild" has
been used to run configure and translate a select set of env variables
to configure arguments. This limits the ability to change the
configuration of jprt builds from the jprt command line. It also
increases the difference between how a local build and a jprt build is
JPRT was recently enhanced to support running configure and handling
configure arguments for the build. Activating this feature requires some
minor changes to the makefiles and jprt.properties. For jdk9, I chose to
fully remove the bridgebuild support along with it.
