I have just synced my local jdk9/dev repos and today I see this build error:

: error C2220: warning treated as error - no 'object' file generated
: warning C4819: The file contains a character that cannot be 
represented in the current code page (936). Save the file in Unicode 
format to prevent data loss

Same in src/closed/java.desktop/share/native/libt2k/t2k/ttHints/FntDebug.c.

Looks like there are several <0x93> <0x94> or (c) chars there. Must I 
upgrade to VS2013? Or is there something else go wrong?
