How do I set up autoconf on Windows *without* any Cygwin or Mingw

I seem to recall Lars J. Aas worked on a set of shell script wrappers
to masquerade MSVC as a Unix compiler, so it can be used with MSVC.

(Note you don't need a working autoconf to run ./configure.)

Hi Brandon,

I'm using as a wrapper for microsoft's compiler and linker in order to build a theorem prover & the Qt-using GUI with MSVC [1], and it works nicely with a normal autotools setup.

There is also a automake-to-MSVC-project coneverter that you could try out, as well.

[1] The Qt libs on windows are built with MSVC++, so I have to use it. :)
