You should be able to do this.  For Solaris and Linux and Windows
under Cygwin/MinGW, just create separate object directories for
each platform and run configure from each.  For example:
        cd ldap (top of source tree)
        mkdir linux
        cd linux

Repeat for other platforms.

And should be able to source tree for MSVC builds if you like.
