Well, you are welcome to submit a makefile, and it will be useful for
people who prefer this type of build.

But, I use a VC++ project because:
- one click rebuild of my entire solution/workspace
- automatic dependency tracking when cairo source changes
- automatic linker settings
- automatic full source debugging
- VC++ navigation database: go to declaration, go to definition
- ease of use/share between different solutions

...and, this is a totally VC++ centric point of view. I do not care
about using the same make/makefiles/autoconf/etc on different
platforms. All I am interested in is productivity and ease of
development using VC++ :)

Best regards,
