More or less, yes. It does support both debug and release build. It
does not support Itanium builds (atleast not the way the other projects
do); as a result, the Itanium build currently just doesn't offer SSL.

More importantly, build_ssl.py is not based on distutils. Instead, it
is manually hacked up - a VBScript file would have worked as well. So
if you were to create many custom build scripts (one per codec), you
might just as well generate the VS project files directly.
