experience shows that on windows mixing code from different compilers
just don't work (heck even switching to a different flag for one module
usually lead to errors or crashes at runtime).

  Then you never tried ! xmlwin32config.h and xsltwin32config.h are
not included by build driven by configure, they will just get overwritten
and the conflict with it (as conflict detection is made by searching for
the conflict delimiters in CVS). I don't see how you could get to such a

not a target, what I did was motivated, should not have broken people's
build and I will fix the jhbuild side effect anyway.
