I guess I underestimated how long this would take me...

It's certainly a great educational experience! I've finally managed to
make a bit of a breakthrough (with the make based system) -- apparently
the ordering of the input file names and compiler flags is important for
MSVC -- I'm now onto fixing various includes and macros which seem to
have changed since older MSVS versions -- hopefully there won't be any
more major issues than that on the way to getting firebird building.
(I've also had to modify a mingw specific make file to remove compiler
flags that msvc didn't like -- I'll try and modify this instead to have
a cygwin specific file which is loaded to still allow for building on
mingw, although last I checked LO didn't seem to like the mingw build
anyway -- no idea whether mingw should be supported?)
