Hello (at least Graham),

I'd like to get as far with the cmake on Windows stuff as possible during
Sharkfest I thought we might as well start early ;-)

What do we need to address in the cmake build system to be able to propose
getting rid of the current nmake based Windows build system completely?

One thing that needs to be addressed is the build setup:
Currently parts of the setup (downloading, installing) are done by a script.
Other parts like deciding which versions to use are done by "make setup".
Yet other parts are done when compiling wireshark (like compiling portaudio).
Some are not done by anything in the setup/build process but have to be done
manually (like fixing include files for some environments).

So at least we need to
a) create a list of what needs to be addressed exactly and
b) decide how to do it (my personal approach would be to add all this to
the existing setup script - but I'm not really familiar with all that Windows

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
