Windows build

There's a whole lot of win32 specific stuff that need to be
setup properly before this thing works. It most certainly doesn't
work outofthebox asis. Maybe there were some small fixes to erts too, 
I don't remember.

Path's to MS compiler (version??) etc to work standalone/commandline, 
Cygnus (1.0 needs to be installed directly under C:), ... etc

If compiling openssl, we need ActivePerl first in the 
path, compiling erts need Cygnus perl first in the path....
These were things from the top of my head, there were probably 
more, and as I said, we dropped it and I no longer work on it.

ignore this .. (I think)

Basically yes. Install the MS compiler and see what _it_ adds to the
path in the registry and copy that.

As well as all the cygnus path's as usual.

Good luck
