I agree. Since MinGW port is mature, as part of GNU, we should also
promote it. I have myself used MinGW for building Emacs and have not
seen any shortcomings (that MS-VS could solve).

effort on adding VC8 support is unjustified.  You are welcome to try
to make it work and submit the resulting patches, of course.

I will give it a shot. If the changes are few and easy to incorporate,
might be worth having it in.

We tried to use libcmt, but the resulting binary crashes because some
conflict with memory allocation functions.

That is a good pointer, I will try to focus on that.

with best regards,
