I know that there's a free C/C++ compiler from MS available. But that's
not enough to compile TSVN. TSVN needs the MFC library which only comes
with VS.NET.

About MSBuild: maybe that's available in the .NET2.0Beta, but I'm not
sure. And before I don't know for sure, I won't download such a big package.

I found that, yes. The problem is: the PATH variable has multiple paths
separated by ';' in it, and I need to start a program which is in one of
those paths.
I searched the Nant forums and there was talking about having the paths
to the VS.NET binaries added automatically in future versions. Maybe
that's already done by now, I don't know.

Since TSVN needs VS.NET (because of the MFC) I'd rather use MSBuild than
Nant when it is available, because then we don't have another dependency
for our build process.
