Hi David,  on older OS than Windows 7 we wouldn't be able to build OJDK anyway 
currently. Our oldest VS we still support (see toolchain_microsoft.m4) is 
VS2017 has the following system requirements 
see supported OS ,  there the oldest supported OS is Windows Server 2012 R2 and 
Windows 7 SP1. So on older than Win7 we would not even have a compiler anymore 
that passes configure.
