Nice write up.

For what it's worth, you don't need to modify the make/build.properties 
file. Instead, you can override the properties by creating a new, 
untracked file build.properties in the root of the repo.  This file will 
be read ahead of the existing make/build.properties file, and so the 
settings in the new file will be used instead.

Separately, if you have downloaded the necessary files to build the file 
with Ant, the chances are that you have enough bits to build using 
"make".  The settings file is make/Defs.mk, and you can either edit that 
file, or provide values on the "make" command line.  If you just type 
"make", that should be enough to build jtreg. If you type "make test" 
that will try and run the tests as well.  But, to run the tests, you 
will likely need more versions of JDK available, so that jtreg can be 
built on one version and tested on others.
