[opensource-dev] Request for help on compiling Snowglobe

Linden Lab neither supports standalone nor 64bit. (Snowglobe is
often broken for standalone because it's never tested by LL
when they make changes).

On top of that, almost non of the opensource developers that
volunteer here use windows natively (I don't know of any).
I know that Robin did some work on windows, but in a virtual
machine I imagine? And he's really a debian guy, swamped with
lots of work.

I wish I could help, I haven't touched windows in my life :p
Hopefully I'm wrong and some windows expert will jump out
of nowhere, but otherwise I'm afraid that YOU will have to
become our windows standalone-build expert.
