I have updated the IcedTea 3 build system to use the new
OpenJDK 8 configure --with-import-hotspot option for JamVM and CACAO builds.

This change also pulled in the new JamVM with full JSR 292 invoke dynamic, JSR 308 and JEP 171 support.

./java -jamvm -version
openjdk version "1.8.0-fcs"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0-fcs-xranby_2013_03_28_12_21-b00)
JamVM (build 1.6.0-devel, inline-threaded interpreter with stack-caching)
