+This recipe for building may seem tediuous, in that it uses command line interface to do things. It was a goal in this case, that it be script-able, and require no user interaction. The first 3 steps are exceptions. In many cases, you could do things just as simply/quickly using file explorer, or wordpad. I've pointed these out in <i>...or...</i> lines below some of the more obvious steps.

-MSYS provides programs to do a very minimal unix system on your windows box. You do not need to install MING or the Mozilla Build Environment, if you don't want, tho both most likely will include msys, if you already have one of them installed. You can find msys on the sourceforge site here.

Our next problem is, that the project file, by default is configured to build with the /MD option, which means it will be dynamically linked to the Microsoft runtime. This will be a problem if it links to the current MS runtime library, because target deployment machines won't necessarily have that specific version. There is no real dependency on a particular version. So it's easier to compile that statically in. It doesn't make the library that much bigger.
