Sorry for the confusion, but the latest commit from the msvc branch
currently merged into master is 38846c5f, which was apparently merged
via the tests-init branch. That was right before the recent round of
AM_PROG_AR commits. And 38846c5f is just a few "obvious" changes
after a change to the compile script, so it is a sensible point to
merge into maint should it not be desirable to merge msvc wholesale.
(However, from my POV, I think it is indeed desirable to just merge
msvc into maint/branch-1.11 before the release. Of course.)
