I'd need to see how we would build with this (we build mostly WITH_xxx=dll), but a priori it addresses many of the problems that we
are currently addressing the MAKE="NMAKE /e" trick...;a=blob;f=dependencies/libcurl-new.bat;hb=HEAD

That’s one example of what we need.

As is that.

That looks about what we'd need. I'm assuming that somewhere in there is an inferred "ENABLE_WINSSL=no"

Is there the option of setting BASE_NAME and BASE_NAME_DEBUG? we need that (to keep the dll name space separate).

Great news!. Thanks.

Hmm. Let's see whether git can eat it, failing that I guess that the Unix support in "Anniversary Edition" will eat it.

I'll try and review this this week.
