autoconf, basically. autoconf's check for whether it can use -g is busted, but the effect of this is just a benign warning from the compiler. (I have a patch for this that I submitted to autoconf-patches many months ago; but it was ignored.)

libtool, unfortunately, is quite broken. There is some bitrotted support for cl/lib. But as I understand it this was maimed as a side effect of improvements to gcc/win32 support. I have threatened in the past to fix this; unfortunately, I just haven't found the time.

There is the very, very cool cccl project:

though I don't know whether it works with the free beer compilers from MS. It works quite well with autoqt and VC++ 6 in order to build our theorem prover and link the GUI to qt all from the same autotools build scripts we use under unix.
