the windows builds use MSBuild
for the Visual Studio builds. It's a command-line tool and fairly
painless to automate, especially when there is a Jenkins plugin
available for it.

I would imagine that even when using Ant you would still need to have
the project files in order to build with MSVC. MinGW32 is a lot easier
because you can just reuse existing autoconf stuff.
