Well, no one uses VC++ on Linux :-). But this is a problem with other 
tools as well (e.g. the gcc distribution included gcj and a bastard 
"jar" command for a while, till Gerrit (fortunately) axed it).

Just make sure that your VC++ directories are at the *front* of your 
PATH. If necessary, do the change in the Makefile itself:

VSHOME:=/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003


# That's one line above, for the PATH setting - the mailer may break
# it up..

And now you can safely rely on picking up the VC++ tools in preference 
to any similarly named cygwin tools.
