If you could make Git compile with Visual C++, that would be fabulous.

I prefer GCC (the MinGW port), but without the MSYS ports of
additional tools.  I use the GnuWin32 ports augmented by some of my
own (where GnuWin32 ports are buggy or terribly slow).

They should work, too. If a tool is missing, ought to notice it soon enough.

These are important to note, though:

- The tools must not do their own LF->CRLF conversion when they are used in a pipeline, "just because they know it better".

- GNU tar is needed (in the cpio emulator).

- ln must be able to create hard links on NTFS or do the equivalent of
cp -p

- GNU cp -al will be needed and should create hard links on NTFS. (I plan to use it for local clones in place of cpio -pl.)

Any feedback on how git works for you with these tools is appreciated.
