So, when you get things going, it would be nice if you were to set up a
dashboard for the windows build.  Would you be able to run nightly jobs
on your machine?  If so, I can help you set them up.  The results would go here:

I have not yet set up a windows build, as it is not all compiling yet.
However, it might be time to disable parts of the build that do not work,
and enable the parts that do work, so that ground is not lost.  (i.e. what
is working now, stays working.)  As new stuff starts to work, it can be added
to the build.

Now all we need is someone with a Mac that is free for several hours each night....
