OpenJDK configure is reading VS environment properties
VS100COMNTOOLS/VS120COMNTOOLS/VS140COMNTOOLS etc. One option is to set just one
of them. AFAIK configure takes latest supported VS (2013 for ojdk9).
Another option is to use configure parameters, but I don't know how exactly use
them. Try to look to configure help
$ bash ./configure --help | grep toolchain
--with-tools-dir alias for --with-toolchain-path for backwards
--with-toolchain-path prepend these directories when searching for
toolchain binaries (compilers etc)
--with-toolchain-type the toolchain type (or family) to use, use '--help'
the version of the toolchain to look for, use
--with-build-devkit Devkit to use for the build platform toolchain
The following toolchains are available as arguments to --with-toolchain-type.
