jdk10 on macOS

That sounds like a problem using an older build of jtreg, from the Adopt 
OpenJDK group. The tell-tale evidence is the Class-Path entry in the 
jtreg.jar MANIFEST.MF file:  does that entry include asmtools.jar?

There have been build changes for jtreg recently, that should have 
addressed this problem. If nothing else, it is now much easier to build 
jtreg yourself. The only external components you need are Ant and a 
recent JDK, such as JDK 8. Everything else will be downloaded, and built 
if necessary.
