 The Windows build system uses a tool named CMake to generate build files for
 a variety of project systems.  This tool is combined with a set of jscript
 files to enable building of MySQL for Windows directly out of a bzr clone.

-Clone your bzr tree to any location you like.
+One of the nice CMake features is "out-of-source" build support, which 
+means not building in the source directory, but in dedicated build 
+directory. This keeps the source directory clean and allows for more than 
+single build tree for the same source tree (e.g debug and release, 32 and 
+64 bit etc). We'll create subdirectory "bld" in the source directory for 
+this purpose. Clone your bzr tree to any location you like.

-From the root of your installation directory, execute the command:
+From the root of your installation directory use cmake . -L to see the

-    __NT__                               Enable named pipe support
