        Description

        Internally at Oracle, we have been using devkits for building on Linux and Solaris. We would like to extend this to also work on Windows for our internal build servers. Using a devkit simplifies build server setup and maintenance greatly by not having to pre install a certain version of Visual Studio but instead being able to just plop down a bundle with the correct version.

        This issue is about addinng support for using --with-devkit on windows. I will also document how that devkit can be created.
