build system

Why you might need it
Microsoft doesn't provide any way to reliably build Visual Basic projects. Nmake.exe is made for Visual C++, not vb. It's not a very good make program anyway. In order to use GNU make (gmake) or perl's you need a more posix like makefile.

What does it do for me?
This package will generate GNU style makefiles based on your Visual Basic Project files. It can resolve file path and system registry paths. If you work in a team environment, use SourceSafe, then you might benefit from this package.

Would I find this useful?
You need it if you want to use a decent makefile processor like GNU's make. Mozilla maintainers won't use nmake.exe either. They know better.
