hi all
I'm having some issues building rust for windows
hoping to get some feedback
*rustc for windows
specifically, following the README, using either ./configure etc or bootstrap seems to choose gcc instead of visual studio
now the README mentions "Make sure to check the 'C++ tools' option.", which I am guessing refers to when you install MSVC rather than when you are configuring the rustc build

./configure --build=x86_64-pc-windows-msvc was the correct solution if anyone wants to know! :]
