Now that we're using gnulib and automake, building Wget without the use of the configure script is quite a bit harder than using configure. MinGW + MSYS makes it easy to use the existing Unix-y build process to generate wget builds for Windows; MSVS begins to look less attractive for official maintenance.

While I'm at it, consider including these patches for static-linked wget on MSVS:


changes are against 1.11.4.

Tentatively targeting at 1.12, but may decide to do this after the Unix sources are released.
