Just FYI, this quote is from the 'VisualStudio Setup Instructions'
section. Yes, you are correct, if you don't specify the option, you
don't get a build.

It should be a pretty simple fix. I'll file a bug and add a quick patch
to use a default value of 11s as advertised.

No. It appears that the generated build batch file [ex.
build-msvc-8.0.bat] only supports the /BUILDTYPE option with parameters
8[s,d], 11[s,d], 12[s,d] or 15[s,d].
