Hi Magnus,

I actually merged down the freetype compilation from the source during the configuration cycle as it’s being done in JDK9 actually. This was not that straightforward but I could sort that out and had a successful compilation afterwards.

Here is the link to the webrev:  http://reinharts.dyndns.org/buildjdk8win/webrev/ <http://reinharts.dyndns.org/buildjdk8win/webrev/>

In order to lower the effort of building also the OpenJDK 8 on Windows, myself and some colleges have back ported the build scripts from OpenJDK 9. We also could provide a webrev containing all changes we made.
