Yeah, yeah, I know. Nevertheless, on Windows plain C is not used much - people just use C++ because it's much nicer.
And anyway, any build system that claims to be portable MUST support MSVC whether you like it or not. It's the most used compiler on Windows and lack of its support means that your build system is instantly disqualified.
