And may I say that Stefan's build scripts are "teh win". I had Tortoise downloaded and built, with all those dependencies in a matter of minutes. It was a thing of pure beauty.
FYI, he uses Nant, and if there was an case for an alternative build system, I can only suggest using Ant (which is mostly-but-not-quite related to Nant - see http://it.toolbox.com/blogs/paytonbyrd/ant-a-primer-for-nant-users-5772 for some conversion details).
