I've got some of a Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 build of Freeciv
working. I've run into an impediment, however: VC9 does not support
variable length arrays.
VLAs are part of the C99 standard, so you can say Microsoft is the
bad guy here. My question is whether you're willing to support the
bad guy's compiler. Or, put another way, compilers that aren't GCC
and aren't C99. I could make all the needed changes, but there would
be little point if they won't ever be accepted.
