Description
Changes are required to build HotSpot using the Visual Studio 2008 compiler.

These are minor and are mostly concerned with the new version strings and use
of 'manifest' files to sign .dll and .exe files generated during a build.

The files affected are:

hotspot/make/windows/makefiles/adlc.make
hotspot/make/windows/makefiles/compile.make
hotspot/make/windows/makefiles/debug.make
hotspot/make/windows/makefiles/defs.make
hotspot/make/windows/makefiles/fastdebug.make
hotspot/make/windows/makefiles/product.make
hotspot/make/windows/makefiles/sa.make
hotspot/src/cpu/x86/vm/register_definitions_x86.cpp
