[mapguide-internals] MapGuide open source builds

reading the thread, the last post even mentioned a working rpm
distribution mechanism

other items i skimmed out was that getting rid of most of the
thirdparty directory provides much
better 64-bit support,  and the compile time is meant to be a lot
faster... ie less than 10 hours
or so from memory

the major issue seemed to be whether it was windows & linux or just windows
and the generation of the visual studio build files via cmake  wasn't
too popular

A bit of a frustrating experience for me (and I think probably for Helio as well) given the current difficulty of building FDO/MapGuide across various Linux platforms _and_ the fact that the build was ready to go and just had to be adopted as an alternate build system.
