As long as instructions are supplied on how to pass in user defined
macros to the build system.  I have to turn off a lot of the extra
safety crap that VC2k5 and higher added otherwise a program of mine
takes 5 minutes to run (where with that safety crap disabled it takes
about 15 seconds, no joke on the times).  In the VC++ projects I just
select them all, right-click, properties, C/C++, Preprocessor,
Preprocessor definitions, and add 6 definitions in there to fix it.
Although you 'can' link together parts that do not include those, and
the linker does not complain for some god forsaken reason, all your
app does then is just crash, every time, no reason as far as you can

I am sure I am not the only one that does that, so supplying such
instructions for how to add in your own preprocessor definitions would
be great.
