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.
The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men
of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.
