No. You need to define a whole host of macros (WINCE and _ARM_ among

It's present in my VS8 professtional installation.

I'd like to support cross-compile for arm as well. However...
1. I don't think x86_arm.bat correctly sets up the PATH, INCLUDE and LIB
2. Finding out what defines, compiler and linker settings need to be added
is a pain in the a** as VS is doing a lot of strange things.
3. I am *very* confused as to what exactly VC8 is doing when targetting
4. Where is the x86_mips.bat, x86_sh.bat and x86_x86ce.bat?!!
I have been working on a variant of msvc.jam that doesn't use vcvars.bat (or
*.bat), and have /something/ *partially* working for x86-arm/mips/sh, but am
getting lost as to what exactly is going on!
