Just to say that the Makefile now translates targets into jtreg groups 
so do you can do "make test TEST=<group>" then it will run the tests in 
that group.

The client areas tests are currently split into 6 sub-groups:

jdk_desktop = \
     :jdk_awt \
     :jdk_2d \
     :jdk_beans \
     :jdk_swing \
     :jdk_sound \

So you can specify TEST=jdk_desktop if you are feeling lucky or run 
subsets of the tests. The one thing is that the Makefile uses agentvm 
mode and as we've seen, these client area tests may need work in order 
to run in this mode.
