Based on my experience with LLVM, which build process was more
convoluted than Emacs', I don't expect problems with the Windows
build. I've looked at nt/config.nt and much of the stuff there already
is implemented by my Unix prototype. AFAIK the Windows build follows the
same logical steps as the Unix build, but working around the limitations
of not having autoconf etc. That workarounds will disappear for the most
part on the cmake build. nt/config.nt, for instance, will be unnecessary
and src/config.in (or actually src/config.cmake) will be used for all
