We've had ecpg regression tests being doing by the buildfarm for a 
while, but they are not enabled for MSVC. Also, buildfarm has never 
supported doing MBCS regression tests. In both cases the regression 
tests are driven by Unix shell scripts, and in the MBCS case at least, 
the script would need plenty of love before it would be suitable for the 
buildfarm even on Unix.

Back when we were thinking of supporting MSVC builds, we thought that 
everything would need to be a C program, and so we rewrote the main 
regression script in C, for example. However, now we have a build system 
for MSVC we can see that its main infrastructure is in fact perl, so I 
think what we need to do is to convert the MBCS and ECPG regression 
drivers to perl rather than C - which should be far, far  simpler task.

I'm going to try to get these done and supported by the buildfarm by the 
time we get to Beta.

cheers
