Re: build svn nmap on mswin32 under cygwin

Actually I am rather fond of nmap requiring VS. I have had to do some  
windows specific development for nmap and I did it on a windows  
machine. Developing with VS is much more comfortable  than anything  
cygwin can offer. Dropping the VS dependency would mean making the  
development of windows specific nmap code even more tiresome than it  
already is. If you don't like VS you are probably not one of the  
people doing windows nmap development so you can just use the Makefile  
with the express version of VS. But if you replace the windows build  
system, there's no way for developers to use a decent IDE even if they  
wanted to.
