updating TestNG and JUnit for jtreg

Thanks!  I was able to successfully build jtreg4.2-b02.

One thing I keep stumbling over is the need to update BUILD_NUMBER in
my scripts that build jtreg.
The makefiles have BUILD_NUMBER = b00, but that has to be overridden
at make time or the jtreg version check will fail later.  It's a nice
service to your users to update BUILD_NUMBER in the source code before
creating the hg release tag (or abandon build numbers entirely).
(OTOH, other openjdk builds have the same problem)
