I agree. Unless you're using the VC environment to edit the source code, the
files get outdated rather fast. I just took quick look at one of the .vcproj
files and
they seem to be in XML format. Therefore making a script that generates them
shouldn't be too hard.

I looked for this makefile or script that you're mentioning in the most
curl package but I wasn't able to find it. Where can I get it so that I can
create a version of it for VC9?
