configure.js script.... it would also add support for watcom and other
compilers; it also would remove any need to update IDE project files
since they are generated by the same source.

However I know that, as you said, build system is secondary 
as long as it works...

  I won't be taking side on how best build on Windows as I have no clue
about it.

In any case, I'll keep the bakefile updated and in the same location

  How much of it is the source, how much of it is generated. It seems
reasonable to me to add a maintain the bakefile source to the archive,
associated with a README explaining how to use this alternate mechanism,
and then anybody willing to use that instead of whatever the default 
build is should be able to follow the guideline and use the bakefile.
  - adding the .zip file to the distribution does not make sense to me
  - nor adding all the generated makefiles 
so if you indicate clearly what the source is, provide a README and
indicate willingness to provide updates, I will add them in a bakefile
subdirectory of the sources.
