I can contribute to this effort (already built a couple of GDAL  
dependencies: HDFs, netCDF and others) but there is one capcha, and that  
is really an head tearing for me but I insist on it. All my builds have  
renamed DLLs. That is, I don't want version numbers in it (no  
gdal2.0.1.dll) and 32 & 64 bits are encoded in name as well. For example  
gdal will be: gdal_w32.dll & gdal_w64.dll
Don't know if this condition is too restrictive for you.
