I could use some more info on how this would work in practice.  Does this
mean that tarballs of packaged source contain an nmake file in addition to
configure and  I don't think it's safe to assume that one nmake
file is sufficient for all MSVC tool + Platform SDK versions.

Plus also, if end users don't run configure they lose the ability to pass
args to configure (either --with-* or environment variable definitions).
