Cbuilder is only used to compile the win32 native interface. I never 
compiled it myself (don't have Cbuilder), when I compile vlc I always use 
the GTK one.

As for the compilation of vlc, I usually build it from linux 
(cross-compiling) but I recently managed to compile it natively with a mix 
of msys and cygwin. More precisely, I run ./bootstrap under cygwin, then I 
./configure under msys until it fails (generating the Makefiles) I the 
switch to cygwin again and run ./config.status then make until it fails and 
I finally switch back to msys and run make.

Piece of cake ;)
