Ha!  I think I've found the problem.  The visual studio files are using \n
for line endings instead of CR LF.  This was probably caused by the fact
that I'm using the Cygwin version of cvs.

Yeah, there are a lot of issues.  I've gotten as far as getting STLPort and
freetype2 to compile on Cygwin using the microsoft compiler.  Interestly, if
you specify CC=cl to configure, libtool uses Microsoft lib to preform
library creation, rather than ar.  I'm clueless how libtool figured this
