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.

+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

- MYSQL_SERVER_SUFFIX=<suffix> Server suffix, default none
- COMPILATION_COMMENT=<comment> Server comment, default "Source distribution"
- MYSQL_TCP_PORT=<port> Server port, default 3306
- CYBOZU Default character set is UTF8
- EMBED_MANIFESTS Embed custom manifests into final exes, otherwise VS

- WITH_EMBEDDED_SERVER Configure solution to produce libmysqld.dll
