Okay, just wanted to be sure that 8u testing still expects use of 
hotspot testlibrary implementation in hotspot tests.

Though if the @build is actually a no-op is it even necessary to fix it 
rather than just delete it? Sorry I've lost track of where we stand with 
needing to explicitly build the test library in older versions.
