I tried. It really didn't work. There are just too many assumption of
"unix cc style behaviour" in Make, and the VC compiler is just way too
different. If at all possible, I think we'd just end up bastardising our
Makefiles to a point where they'd be very hard to use on *any* platform.

Though to be complete, that was testing with autoconf as well. Didn't
get *anywhere* with autoconf, and didn't get very far at all with the
makefile parts.
