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.
