For Imprudence I've recently been working on making my simple to use
Linux compiler scripts work for Windows as well.  You would still have
to manually install the various dependencies.  In theory the scripts
would work with Kokua as well, but I've not tried that recently.  If I
remember the Linux scripts work fine with Kokua, but there would need
to be some changes to the rest of the Kokua build system for the
Windows variant to work.  Windows viewer builds are not set up for
purely script based builds, so that makes it hard to script them.

These are the scripts I use to make Imprudence releases.  I intend to
make matching Mac OS X build scripts as well, as soon as I have a Mac to
do development with.

A big old stinking pile of genius that no one wants
coz there are too many silver coated monkeys in the world.
