I'm pleased you got this sorted out, and I'm sorry for the confusion.
We used to provide be able to provide a dowload link for the latest
version, and maybe because of that, the build instructions suffered more
bitrot than one would like. Unfortunately, we (Oracle) can no longer
provide a download link, and so I will make more of an effort to keep
the build instructions up to date.
For what it's worth, for anyone working on tests in the jdk8/ forests, I
would encourage the use of the latest jtreg source code, because of the
new features going in that are now being relied on.
