Done. Since I haven't tested all these compilers (and can't, now that
using Windows anymore), I didn't give detailed instructions, but that
now mentioned in the top paragraph of my Windows HowTo page. If you
check it, it's http://users.skynet.be/antoine.mechelynck/vim/compile.htm
Thanks. One other thing, please mention the possibility of obtaining
the sources via Subversion (and CVS) and link to the respective pages
on Vim.org. And make parallel modifications to the Unix pages.
Please, George, I'm not trying to write a catalogue of all possible methods
for building Vim. I'm showing, with all the detail I could think of, how I did
it myself. In addition to adding to the Windows page a "table of contents"
block in the same style as that of the Unix page, I've gone as far as
mentioning the existence of CVS, A-A-P and Subversion at the top of the "Every
time" section describing how to get the patches. If you think it isn't enough,
I'm not detaining you from adding a "compiling" page to your Vim site,
describing how _you_ do it. I'm all for variety: the more the merrier (and the
possibility of doing one thing in several ways is a landmark of Vim). In the
meantime, I just added your Vim page to my top-level Vim page, together with
the Vim-online site, Dr. Chip's, Steve Hall's download page, etc.
Message will arrive in the mail. Destroy, before the FBI sees it.
