        Description

        In jdk8u, some compiler-specific knowledge is embedded in
        hotspot/make/windows/makefiles/compile.make
        and this sets some required compiler options.

        A build will fail if the compiler is not recognised.

        VS2013 is not recognised, and e.g.
        GX_OPTION = /EHsc
        ...will not be set.

        We should make this file handle VS2013 and later, and update any
        other version checks to let hotspot build.

        This is an 8-specific change. That file is removed in 9 with:
        8150601: Remove the old Hotspot build system
