      Description

      Attempt to use the "-helpfile" option leads to the following error:
      javadoc: error - Option reused: -helpfile

      The reason is the inappropriate value checking for null after correct initialization of the "helpfile" variable (jdk.javadoc.internal.doclets.formats.html.ConfigurationImpl.validateOptions()):

      ..............
          protected boolean validateOptions() {
      ..............
              if (opt.matches("-helpfile")) {
      ..............
                  if (this.helpfile != null) {
                      reporter.print(ERROR, getText("doclet.Option_reuse",
                          "-helpfile"));
                      return false;
                  }
