The pack200 test tools/Pack200Test.java fails on Macs.

EVALUATION In order to verify memory leaks this test rotates through cycles of packing and unpacking and checks for memory leaks, however due to OS and VM/GC variations we allow a 20M tolerance for noise, on Macs we need to increase this tolerance to 21M, as it exceeds the tolerance by 104K.
