RFR: 8296420: javac has long lines in its command-line help

The issue states that the output of `javac --help` and `javac --help-extra` should not overflow 80 columns.

This patch updates `javac.properties` to add newlines, etc. to address this issue, and adds a regression test.


Commit messages:
 - Restrict javac command line help output to 80 columns.
