That's not entirely true.  It's very possible to run visual studio
projects from the command line in cygwin, which is what I want to do.
You just run cl.exe or similar.  The issue is that it requires a ton
of environment setup and other crap that I would rather not deal with.
 I was hoping premake already had this.  I'm not asking to translate
the VS project into a premake script but whether a premake script can
build using VS' commandline tools.  There's a difference.
