RFR: 8183505: Update langtools tests to allow for unique test classes directory

jtreg has been updated via CODETOOLS-7902003  to use a unique
test.classes directory. This is part of improving the reliability when
running tests concurrently. The change exposes issues in a small number
of tests in the hotspot, jdk, and langtools repos and these issues will
need to be fixed before the requiredVersion can be bumped to use a
promoted jtreg with this change.
The few changes are all related to deriving the path for the library
classes from test.class.path, instead of assuming a fixed relationship
to the test's classes.
I'd like to push these to jdk10/jdk10 so that they can meet up with
changes coming for related issues in the jdk and hotspot repos.
