This spring I used Per's build environment to build otp_r6b
for win32. It's obviously much better to build on the 
win32 machine directly than to build (and debug) in a mixed
adhoc environment. Use Cygnus gmake, openssl, perl MSVC++ nmake ...

We aimed to ship our stuff on win32 as well
as unices.  (Un ...)fortunately this was cancelled so we never
shiped. However here's the build_nt directory which I used.
It's supposed to reside just under $ERL_TOP
