You probably want to look at the kaffe-build module in the CVS, as that
contains some MSVC build stuff from 2 years ago.  It probably needs to
be updated, of course.  You could try configuring Kaffe using cygwin,
and try moving the config values in the generated header files to static
header files (eg. those in the kaffe-build module).

If you're embedding it - be aware that Kaffe is GPL'd, so it's probably
not what you want to integrate into a proprietary application that you
are going to distribute.
