How to compile on Win32 when no MSVC present ?

Hi !

Is it possible to compile a native Win32 Subversion without MSVC ?
Unless I am mistaken, MSVC is payware, so I can't simply grab a copy and
compile away, right ?

If so, am I out of luck ? I know Branko and others have done a
tremendous job of keeping Win32 users current in terms of versions, but
I would like to build a 1.2 version for myself, because I need access to
locking (Dreamweaver users, you know).

If it's simply a matter of RTFM, just say so. Just so you know, I read
HACKING, INSTALL, the Book and Googled around. I couldn't find anything
that said otherwise. For instance, INSTALL says:
"""
   E. Building the Latest Source under Windows
       ----------------------------------------

   E.1 Prerequisites

       * Visual Studio 6 and service pack. It can be built with Visual
         Studio 7 (aka Visual Studio.NET aka Visual Studio.NET 2002) but
         these instructions assumes VS6.
"""

I read on the list that it is possible to compile under Cygwin, but I
would like to avoid that, if possible.

Thanks,
François
