Hi all

I help maintain Liblouis, a library to translate text to Braille. We use
gnulib quite successfully IMHO.

Now we have some users who would like to build with MSVC and they claim
that this is really difficult due to the use of gnulib. I don't quite
understand the problems ('cause I live in a bubble called glibc), but
from what I understand they would like to build the project in MSVC
possibly without using any of the autotools.

I have found some threads related to this issue

What is the general approach when building a gnulib based project with
MSVC? Is this documented anywhere? I'd be happy to provide documentation
patches once I find out how this is done.
