Make_mvc.mak is not, and by far, the only makefile used by people who 
build Vim on Windows. If you want your port to become the "main" version 
some day, patches for the other makefiles should also be available. For 
instance, Steve Hall (who maintains the Vim builds, with and without 
Cream, but with Python et al., hosted with the Cream project) uses, I 
think, the Make_cyg.mak -- and I've seen now and again posts by Windows 
users building by means of the Make_ming.mak too. I've used the 
make_bc5.mak in the past, but the problems I had with it (when trying to 
use Unicode in Vim on Win98) made me switch to Make_cyg.mak even before 
moving up to XP and then to Linux-only; but my HowTo "for Windows" still 
includes settings for it.
