Building Valhalla/JDK9 on Windows

I have just tried building both Valhalla and JDK9 on Windows and failed
with the following error during "bash configure":

bash configure --with-freetype-src=c:/apps/freetype

checking if fixpath can be created... yes
checking if fixpath.exe works... no
Microsoft (R) C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 16.00.40219.01 for x64
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

c1 : fatal error C1083: Cannot open source file:
No such file or directory
configure: error: fixpath did not work!

Using Babun shell
Windows 7 Professional
Have previously successfully compiled OpenJDK (not recently), so have
freetype and compilers

While it is possible that I might have out of date compilers/freetype, the
error I'm getting doesn't seem related to anything out of date.

Any suggestions?
