#807 Could anyone pls make a simple guide on how to build espeak-ng on windows?

Hi everyone!

I am having a bad time trying to build espeak-ng on windows. First of all, pls. do not advice to use "ready to use .exe and .msi".

By a simple guide I mean some script like "First download and install MS Visual Studio 2017 Community edition. Then Install Wix... Then find msbuild AT FOLDER (folder, as there are a lot of them), invoke msbuild /p (some paramters)... espeak-ng.sln" and so on. The thing is, I gave up resolving errors like stddef.h: No such file or directory ctype.h: No such file or directory errno.h: No such file or directory vcbuild.exe not found and so on, installing more and more adds-on to Visual Studio, which is already more than 12 GB! I assume I go the wrong way, and there must be something I missed. That's so easy to build it on the linux systems, why it's so painful on Windows... God!
