configure.bat is no longer supported because cmake is the preferred alternative. The configure.bat and associated code should be removed from the repo and the documentation updated.
In a previous meeting, I thought we had agreed to continue to support configure. There this bug needs to be deleted.
This is for windows since we are not testing or updating Autotools for windows. I'm not sure it works anymore. Cmake is the only supported build system for windows.
Configure doesnt work any more for sure on Windows. Its a pity, since in my experience its much easier to use than cmake.
