jlink’s -o/--output option names exactly the thing being output,
rather than a container for the thing being output.

The jpackage option we’re discussing here names a container for the
thing being output, much like the -d option of javac and javadoc.

Using -d/--dest for jpackage is consistent with the JDK’s other
command-line tools.
