[OpenJDK 2D-Dev] RFR: JDK-8177135: OpenJDK 9 freetype needs msvcr100.dll

The build of freetype used internally at Oracle when building OpenJDK 
builds (for the reference implementation) is very old. It was also built 
using Visual Studio 2010, which makes it require msvcr100.dll, while the 
rest of OpenJDK is built with Visual Studio 2013 and subsequently 
require msvcr120.dll.

I have built new freetype binaries, using Visual Studio 2013, from the 
latest available freetype source, 2.7.1. We have verified that the 
OpenJDK builds using these binaries are behaving equally to those with 
the old binary, except for not requiring msvcr100.dll. This patch 
changes the jib-profiles configuration for JDK 9 to use the new freetype
