[GE dev] How to compile on windows?

I thought there were one on gridengine.sunsource.net, but I don't find them.

In short:

The official build host has installed:
Windows XP Professional (latest Service Pack)
Microsoft Services for Unix 3.5
gcc 3.3
gmake 3.80 (newest version should also do)
Microsoft VisualStudio 7

If you don't have the Microsoft VisualStudio 7, you still can build all 
Interix binaries, but not the Win32 binaries. You will have to comment 
out the WIN32_APPLICATIONS section in the aimk script. Perhaps there 
should be added a "-no-win32" option.

You can get gcc and gmake from 

Get the sources to a shared directory and follow the normal build 
instructions on a UNIX host. When everything compiles successfully on 
the UNIX host, go to the Windows host and run in the same shared directory:

# aimk -no-java -debug -no-opt

If you like, write down the exact steps to set up the host and build the 
Windows binaries from scratch. I'll add it to the HowTo section then.
