> Currently, if both Visual Studio and the Windows SDK are installed on
> a system, configure will favor the sdk as the source for a build
> environment. This works equally well for OpenJDK, but not for
> OracleJDK. Using the Windows SDK also isn't the officially supported
> way of building. This patch changes the search order for a proper
> build environment, placing Visual Studio ahead of the SDK.
> While making sure that this would still work with the open and the
> limited support for Visual Studio Express that exist today, I also did
> some improvements on looking for msvcr100.dll. The one in
> windows\system32 is only considered for 32bit builds as it seems to
> always be 32bit. For 64bit builds I added the one installed with the
> Visual Studio debugger for 64bit.
> Hopefully this will relieve some of the pain when trying to build on
Looks good to me.
