Although I didn't do a survey, I think most of the software in OSGeo4W is
compiled with various versions of Microsoft Visual C++. E.g. GDAL, proj4,
GEOS, python and Qt & QGIS. The last two with Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition.
GRASS is compiled with MinGW and the osgeo4w installer with cygwin.
The build processes on Windows are often more involved that simply running
configure && make install and differ from package to package.
