Build issues

Hi Daniel,

This is due to a change in how `mx` builds. You now need to provide a JDK 8 to build graal.

You can add the path to a JDK 8 in the EXTRA_JAVA_HOMES environment variable or with the --extra-java-homes argument to `mx`.

Doug explained this in more details in a separate email on this list ("mx: --strict-compliance is now the only supported mode").
