Fair enough.  I was just trying to upgrade an inhouse app of ours that uses 
Freetype the other day from VS2010 to VS2015, and although I got everything 
compiling ok I couldn't get it to link, with various complaints about 
mismatching versions etc and conflicting libs. After a few hours I gave up and 
reverted everything. I'll get it done eventually, but it seems like I've always 
got other work to do in the meantime so if I don't make progress on something 
like that I give up on it until another day. My bad.  If I took the time to 
really study it I could probably figure it out.

I would appreciate your help on this because the active FreeType contributors 
do not use VC. What concerns me is that the project files take up a lot of 
space already while being almost identical between the VC versions. Why 
proliferate files further if vc2010 works for
vc2012 and vc2015? Perhaps we just need a good README that explains build 
targets and what is needed or changed for each compiler.
