I think i found the majority of my problems. Seems as though its
building in VC2012 at the moment. For libintl the path you specify the
gen-win.py looks for path/inc and path/lib. For the headers and lib
where as GnuWin32 installs include and lib. Then bdb it looks for

These feel too hard to find or at least should be documented since there
is very little to no standardization on windows development libraries.
Why not have dependancy-include-dir and dependancy-lib-dir for each for
each of them? Although your gen-make.py is going to be huge but at least
its a little more simple to see whats pointing to where.

Then what happens with ruby and perl bindings for their respective lib
and include paths. And now i just noticed my libintl lib must be wrong
since its looking for intl3_svn.lib and now its failing because i didn't
specify a junit.
