In my never humbler opinioin: If we maintain a CMake build, whoever
builds from source on Windows should have a local install of CMake. My
experience is that Visual Studio project files generated from CMake are
less than intuitive to use correctly; whenever I use CMake on Windows, I
end up casting this simple spell to build with the generated project files:

    cmake --build .

This works consistently regardless of the version of Visual Studio. I've
found that otherwise I'd have to use either msbuild.exe or devenv.exe,
depending on version. Building from the VS GUI /usually/ works but I've
seen enough quirks to never quite trust it.

P.S.: I admit my methods are distinctly (if unintentionally) unfriendly
to the point-and-click crowd.
