Choosing which Visual Studio installation to use

If you have multiple versions installed, configure will pick the one to
use in order of most supported. To explicitly pick one, you can use
--with-toolchain-version=2010 (or some other number) and configure will
look for that specific version of Visual Studio. Just pointing to an
install dir or bin dir does not work because configure needs to know
which version it is dealing with and we haven't implemented smart enough
discovery logic to automatically figure that out.
Note that I recently added configure support for 2015 and 2017 in JDK
11. This does NOT mean the product actually builds with those and
configure will print warnings accordingly. We are working on properly
supporting 2017, but it's apparently non trivial.
