CMake will create whatever you want: VS 6/7/8/9/10/11, NMakefiles,
Unix Makefiles, Eclipse CDT projects, whatever, all from a single make
file. See [1] for the full list. 32-bit 64-bit, your choice.

The CMake files I'm writing let you pick and choose options, e.g.
with/without zlib, Crypto: OpenSSL/libgcrypt/WinCNG. This means we
only need maintain *one* file, similar to the old config.ac, to
support all platforms, toolchains and permutations.
