  The only C++ IDE I have experience with is Visual Stuido express... 
both 2008 and 2010 versions (beta of 2010 did have some er fatal errors 
for building blender unless you hand edited some of VS's files but they 
are fixed in the full release) work fine with using Cmake to generate 
the project files.
