Following your guide:

With a few edits, I then ran:
./configure --with-cc=cl --builddir=objs --prefix=
--conf-path=conf/nginx.conf --pid-path=logs/
--http-log-path=logs/access.log --error-log-path=logs/error.log
--with-cc-opt=-DFD_SETSIZE=1024 --with-pcre=objs/lib/pcre-8.36
--with-zlib=objs/lib/zlib-1.2.8 --with-openssl=objs/lib/openssl-1.0.1e
--with-select_module --with-http_ssl_module --with-ipv6

Which succeeded. Finally I ran: `nmake -f objs/Makefile`, which gave
the following output:

NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make 'src/os/win32/ngx_win32_config

How do I build nginx on Windows?

Thanks for all suggestions
