RE: build svn nmap on mswin32 under cygwin

I can't stress enough that no visual studio should be required ... I think
nmap compiles with just the sdk provided by installing .net, and so you
don't even need the free express versions.

I will see if I can carve out some time to try to compile nmap with those
tools, but it's a bit tricky, and it would require someone to write an
msbuild file for it, since the sln is a solution file for visual studio, and
we really need a build.xml.

Ok, the other thing is this. Please check out mingw ... I have never used
cygwin in the past four or five years, and I am perfectly happy. Mingw gives
me all of my little gnu tools like wc, find, gawk/awk, grep, and the rest,
all in any windows cmd prompt.

It also gives me an extremely stable and good version of gcc, make,
autoconf, and so on.

Take care,
Sina

Thanks Jah.  Your nselib-bin patch was independently done by David, and I
have now applied your copy_and_compile.bat patch.  Please keep us informed
of your progress in getting it all to work with Cygwin.
While it is a shame that compilation currently requires Visual Studio on
Windows, it is nice that it now works on the free version and we also have a
Makefile in mswin32 which lets you compile without actually having to open
that application.

Cheers,
