I think Tor thinks it's said because building OOo on Windows sucks a
lot. I can confirm that. Though it is better than some people think.

As already mentioned in this thread, you should use MSVC++ 2008. I just
had to reinstall it and I could find a downloadable ISO.

I also had to reinstall cygwin. I had some problems with installing the
additional perl modules (some didn't compile). As I don't know if these
modules are *really* necessary, I wait until the build is finished
before I will tell more details about that.
