Excellent! I will improve the configure script to look for this!
It currently only searches for vcvarsall.bat under "Program Files"

So it seems like it can't find the jdk where the rt.jar is stored.
Have you done a default install using the Oracle Java Installer? The Windows/system32/java installation is new to me. Where is the actual jdk stored?

When it thinks it has found the jdk it will look for rt.jar or classes.jar (macosx) in the directories below.
The explicit path to rt.jar is necessary when compiling with -source 6 -target 6, which is done when building the build tools, that have to be run by the boot jdk.
