What will generate the makefile? Makefile.SH would have to be rewritten in PP.

IMO its pointless because Windows doesn't come with a "Unix shell" compiler and M4 compiler out of the box and switching to Visual C with Autoconf+Bash (I've built such FOSS projects before) is insane since not even Unix perl uses M4 or autoconf. I know you wrote one patch 2 yrs ago that generates an auxiliary extensions only makefile for parallel extension building so each extension can be parallelzed to infinity cores instead of the 4 "categories" of extensions building side by side they way they do now and doesn't saturate all cores.
