Well said. Every time I ask I get a response along the lines of "oh
you just run make" along with an anecdote about a script error or
required package which gives about 20% of the required info.

A script which is guaranteed to build on Linux, Windows VS2010 and
VS2012 (lots of devs haven't upgraded) and possibly on Mac too would
enable all the little guys to quickly fix trivial bugs.

When I spent a week trying to get it to compile, to fix my one line
bug, I gave up. I want to contribute but I only have time to do that
and not to mend a build system I don't understand.
