I would be happy to if a) it isn't too complicated (like I said, my C/C++ 
skills are rusty) and b) I can figure out how to get a simple checkout to 
compile properly.

My first goal right now is simply to get the code from the 2382 branch to 
compile without making any changes what-so-ever, but I am struggling with 
that.  I will retry with Tony's latest instructions and see if that makes 
any difference.

Are those scripts part of the CVS tree as well?  Should I be using those 
scripts to build things?

Does that have to be called by hand?  Or is the Rebuild Soln supposed to do 
that for me?

Do you guys use VS for development as well?  Or some other IDE?
