RFR: JDK-8244210: The javac server is never used

A minor mistake in JDK-8244036 is causing the javac server to never be
used, which is rather severly increasing build times.
Before that change, the global variable ENABLE_SJAVAC was used to
determine if the server should be activated. After the change, the
global variable has changed names to ENABLE_JAVAC_SERVER. The
conditional in JavaCompilation.gmk tries to check the value of the local
variable/parameter $1_ENABLE_JAVAC_SERVER instead, but this parameter is
never set or given a default. I don't think we need a local
variable/parameter for this as there is currently no need to disable the
server for any specific SetupJavaCompilation call, so I my fix is to
just refer directly to the global variable from configure/spec.gmk instead.
