How do you build the Blender source code?
I want to build the source code and hopefully step through the code.

I downloaded blinder-2.63.tar and I did not find a "readme" file.


I found this guide for compiling Blender:
http://www.blender.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1173

Windows

Building Blender on Windows with MSVC (2003/10/11)

Compiling Blender 2.26 on Windows XP with MSVC 6 and Python 2.22

Help compiling under Windows using Cygwin
http://www.blender.org/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=692

Compiling in Windows using free tools (mingw-gcc)
http://projects.blender.org/viewcvs/viewcvs.cgi/blender/doc/README.windows-gcc?cvsroot=bf-blender
(click 'view')

The first link interests me since MSVC must mean "Microsoft Visual C" (right ?). But that is a broken link.
Now what?

Is there some reason you would not use the Blender wiki docs on how to build Blender?

See the Building Blender link under the Development tab up above.

You may find your answers here. I use Ubuntu-Studio so can't help you much with Windows.
