I think nt/INSTALL should be gradually refined. It already has a lot
of good stuff; what it is not, however, is a step-by-step guide. So at
this moment, anyone wanting to build on Emacs has to be brave, and
willing to invest a bit of time and also be able to track things down
by h(im|er)self. I have a little experience building on Emacs, and yet
I find so cumbersome setting up the building environment that I've
resorted to having everything needed on a build/ directory (tools,
.BAT scripts I use, etc.) so I just  zip it and move it to new
