I don't think that building using build system A and then, without first cleaning up all the generated files from build system A, building using build system B is guaranteed to work.  (I've had problems with, for example, an in-tree autotools build followed by an out-of-tree CMake build - *before* the extcap stuff was checked in, so it wasn't extcap's fault.)

We should either do a separate checkout for the Windows CMake build or should do an "nmake -f Makefile.nmake maintainer-clean" before the CMake build.


Unfortunately the Windows CMake build currently requires the zlib dll built by nmake, so until that gets fixed the Windows CMake can't be built from a totally clean system (or could be but without zlib support).

In general though, for out-of-tree builds, it would seem that using the quoted form of #include is a little dangerous, I've always had the idea that angle bracket form was for system or platform includes and quoted form for project includes, but maybe I was just confused.
