The makefile could have more sensible defaults for someone installing for the first time:

1) "make" (no arguments)

Right now this runs "make test", but it's more typical in open-source projects to have this stage the install, e.g. install to a ./bin or ./build dir, which "make install" would then copy into place

2) java_analysis should not be part of default build

3) minidump_stackwalk should be part of default build

This one is tricky, it's very slow right now. We should figure out how to make this faster.

scripts/build.sh (which jenkins uses) will also need adjustment. Point 3 in comment 1 is a little trickier because jenkins relies on a pre-built mdsw and doesn't want to build it, so I think we need to have "make socorro" for just the socorro build.
