Change subject: IMPALA-4259: build Impala without any test cluster setup.

Patch Set 1:

I think that would be helpful in many cases if it brought up an Impala cluster. I run ./
-debug -noclean -notests -skiptests -ninja && all the time.

The problem that I see is that there are a number of consumers of this script that assume
passing -notests is sufficient to only build Impala and not try to start a test cluster. Part
of what I was hoping to achieve is to do even less in that case - avoid creating cluster configs,

Do you think it would be helpful to add a new flag to start the cluster? E.g. -start_impala_cluster?

I think we could definitely remove the Kerberos special-case - no reason it should start a
cluster then when the other modes don't.
