New official README-builds.html

The testing section could be made simpler:

JT_HOME=/path/to/jtreg make test

The test suite can be specified with the TEST environment variable:

JT_HOME=/path/to/jtreg make test TEST=jdk_util

The default is TEST=jdk_core which runs a wide selection of tests.

Multiple tests can be specified.

JT_HOME=/path/to/jtreg make test TEST="jdk_security1 jdk_security2 jdk_security3"

The brave and foolhardy can add "CONCURRENCY" to run tests concurrently.

JT_HOME=/path/to/jtreg make test TEST="CONCURRENCY=12 jdk_security1 jdk_security2 jdk_security3"

I have an RFE (JDK-8007129) to add a configure option for locating JTREG which would allow omission of the JT_HOME definition.
