Lots of those.

But what is a makefile?  :)
(read below)


Starting with the Visual Studio 2005 release,
the Microsoft build engine black box is extracted
from Visual Studio. The new build engine, MSBuild,
becomes extensible and available for all since it will
ship with the .NET Framework.


MSBuild is a technology installed with the CLR in
Visual Studio 2005 and "Longhorn." Its goal is to
replace makefiles by project files written in XML
that let you build large-scale systems.

Now ASF has XML for
Windows installation,
Windows building,
where are the
Windows httpd XML configs?    :)

And with the files from the .NET Framework
SDK, one can create a simple Apache CPP
module that loads .NET Framework assemblies
written in CSharp (C#) or VB or whatever.
