The change to start building the jtreg failure handler introduced a
required build dependency on jtreg to be able to build a test-image.
That's wasn't intentional. It should be possible to build the tests
without having jtreg available. This patch adds a configure arg:
"--enable-jtreg-failure-handler" which controls if the failure handler
should be built. It can be true, false or auto, the default is auto. In
auto mode, the failure handler is built if jtreg is available. When
true, missing jtreg becomes an error. When false, the build simply skips
building the failure handler.
I also added --enable-jtreg-failure-handler to the default jib configure
arguments to enforce building with it in Oracle official builds. Jib is
already providing jtreg anyway.
