>                 Key: COUCHDB-733
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-733
>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: Question
>          Components: Documentation
>    Affects Versions: 0.11
>         Environment: Windows 7 with cygwin
>            Reporter: Michael Maguire
>            Priority: Minor
>
> The file: 
> http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/couchdb/trunk/INSTALL.Windows 
> states:
> 47 	You must check that:
> 48 	
> 49 	* The `which link` command points to the Microsoft linker.
> 50 	
> 51 	* The `which cl` command points to the Microsoft compiler.
> 52 	
> 53 	If you do not do this, the ones found in `/usr/bin` may be used instead. 
> This makes it sound as though which link and which cl *should* be the Microsoft ones,
but it's permissible to use the /usr/bin ones.
> Is that the intent?
> If not, can I suggest this says something more like:
> 53 	If you do not do this, the ones found in `/usr/bin` would be used instead, which
won't work properly.
> P.S.:  I'm asking because I'm attempting to get the build going, and even though I've
done vcvars32.bat and 'which cl' is pointing to the Microsoft one, 'which link' is still pointing
to '/usr/bin/link' and I need to know if that's cool or not.
