I don't think that MAMEdev are a bunch of stupids, but I think that MAMEdev are xenophobic and use outdated build tools.

If MAME isn't QA'ed for MSVC, why is the first developer doc on mamedev.org "Building MAME using Microsoft Visual Studio compilers"?

I am almost done with my own version of the MAME build system that links WAY faster (read: static libraries), breaks ridiculous dependency cycles (src/emu depended on drivlist.c which depended on drivers which depended on src/emu), and separates building tools like mk68kmake from building the emulator itself. With these changes and some wrapper code, I can compile and run the latest MAME on Android and Google Native Client.
