Are you referring to our build system or the MSVC tools?  If the former,
I wouldn't mind answering some questions about it.  I know it has some
complicated Make macrology, but it's better than spelling out each rule
in full.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I have no issues with it as an user (or even doing minor changes on *nix). However, understanding and translating those rules to Microsoft's tools required more sanity than I had available (or less sanity, I can't tell!).
