Well, if the level of support there has been upto now is enough, OK
with me... (I assume you have had to edit those files in glib/build
quite heavily? And also edit the makefile.msc files somewhat?)

Getting autotools working with MSVC might be nice indeed. There is a
start at an attempt at a wrapper for cl that would integrate better
with typical Makefiles and be more easily used by libtool in
build/win32/cl-wrapper.c. I don't remember how far I got with
that. But, for most people one main reason to use MSVC presumably
would be its compilation speed, so using MSVC though libtool (which
runs slow as molasses on Win32) might be regarded as counter-productive...

Yeah, for a project i work on, i really want a way
to write .sln files from automake's's.
(only a subset of automake that pertains to library
building need be emulated.)

from the command line, running 'devenv /build release gtk.sln'
would be nice and fast...

i hear there's an API for writing .sln files,
but parsing's is a pain, so this task is tough.

There is a very interesting project that might help although it is still very new. It is called bakefile

It apparently allows you to create project files or auto* files.
