I don't have time to go into details, but unless you really need to
<exec> msdev, I'd go with <cc> from CppTasks. I'm doing both, and I
much prefer <cc>. Invest the time to learn <cc>, it's worth it.

As question on the Ant-Contrib dev mailing list. That's where Curt and
others (including I) discuss it. --DD
