      MSVC Builds: Rework Introspection Build · 7115ccd3
      Chun-wei Fan authored
      The current approach of building the introspection files for GTK works, but
      is often cumbersome as one needs to set many environmental variables before
      launching a solution file, which runs a Windows batch script to generate
      the .gir/.typelib files. It was also possible to hand-run the batch script
      from the Visual Studio command prompt, but even more environmental
      variables need to be set.
      This changes the approach to build the introspection files using an NMake
      Makefile (but elimating from the Visual Studio Project Files the part to
      build the introspection files) to:
      -Make it clearer to the person building the introspection files what
       environmental variables are needed, specifically for PKG_CONFIG_PATH and
       MINGWDIR and CFG (formerly CONF). Setting stuff like VSVER, PLAT and BASEDIR
       is no longer required, which was a bit clunky.
      -Allows some more easier flexibility on the build of the intropsection files.
