Actually, GCC does a remarkable job of generating proper Win32
executables linked into the native runtime. Microsoft even provides GCC
in their Unix add-on (Services for Unix aka Interix).

Microsoft nmake is really quite usable; GNU make works as well. Most
libraries we use allow us to automatically generate a Makefile for
GCC-mingw32. Makefiles for MSVC aren't so simple.
