I meant that CMake cannot generate Visual Studio project files for
Windows without an actual Windows environment with a copy of Visual Studio.

What would really help Linux- (or Mac-) based developers would be
something like the GNU toolchain's 'make dist' which build project files
regardless of what platform it's invoked on, so developers could
support, or at least have a better chance of keeping up to date, build
descriptions they do not themselves test.
