It has become clear [following discussions on the cfe-dev mailing list]
that vc/msbuild do(es) not scale well [enough] to build Clang/LLVM. The
recommended [and what more or less seems to be the only way] is to use the
combo Ninja/Cmake/VC. There are some spells [see llvm web-site] you could
utter that allows you to bootstrap Clang with VC and then build Clang with
the [that] latest Clang.

As far as I read, Edward said there were 2 errors, one of which he thought,
could be ignored.
