Until now, I have been using for the most part the PGI compilers on

Intel compilers which use the MSVC format on Windows (e.g. -link
-libpath:). I have been looking at the pr-msvc-support branch, but
have a few questions.

1. What's the future of that branch? Is it ever likely to merge into
master to become part of a libtool release and have a larger support

Since no one else has responded, I will. I think that the intention is that this branch will eventually merge into master to become part of a libtool release. Libtool history suggests that the germination time for such branches can be quite a long time. Several times now it has taken over four years. Hopefully it will be substantially less time in this case. A lot depends on if the patches in the branch are proven to not diminish portability and performance on other platforms.
