I was taking a look at this today. It seems the build bot uses the
Pro VS edition, and it does not come with atlthunk.lib, thus the error

LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'C:/Progra~1/MICROS~1.0/VC/atlmfc/lib/atlthunk.lib' added the
library, needed when building with the Express edition, but this fails
with the Pro edition (or at least with the version we have at the
University, and the one in the build bot: atlthunk.lib does not exist).

I don't have a solution for this, I don't know if there is a way to
detect if someone  is using the Express or the Pro VS edition; on the other
hand, the way how ATL is handed in and looks
rather error prone: if you don't disable ATL explicitly in configure,
you get ATL_LIB and ATL_INCLUDE from set_soenv without any further check.

Someone developing on windows may find a solution.
