issue with --enable-dbg-util under Windows 7, cygwin64

Goal:  Visual Studio 2010, where I can fully debug calc with an ability to
compile individual files from library sc, and all of the libraries that are
linked to sc.


State of affairs:  via cygwin64, I can build Libreoffice, in a release mode,
with symbols, and open a LibreOffice.sln with 338 projects in Visual Studio


My dev env:


A git clone of Libreoffice from trunk.

Windows 7, SDK 7.0A, DirectX SDK, MSBuild, Visual Studio 2010 Pro (trial




(1)What steps must I do to get autogen.input feature:


to work? 

When I use that option, running 'make' always fails.  I suspect because some
link dependencies are getting built in release mode and create a conflict.  

                Do I need to set specific features in autgen.input that will
support -enable-dbgutil.   I need that flag so boost will get built in debug
mode etc.


Does this require me to manually edit make files?  Has someone done this and
can send me an instruction of what specific files I have to edit? Or can
someone point me to a url where I can download edited make files?


I saw an email that 'make dev-install'  would do what I want..but apparently
that has been deprecated.


I ask, because it's a huge task of work.





With these options in autogen.input, my build does finish










After a good build, I run

make vs2012-ide-integration  ( I edit the file to work with VS2010)


And then I can open LibreOffice.sln in visual Studio 2010.





I can't get this optional feature of configure to work



My build fails.  I suspect because many of the lower level librairies get
built in release mode.and create a conflict.
