Thanks Ray - it turned out that my build was accidentally picking up 
'stdint.h' from an old installation of mingw (when I'm in fact building 
with VS2015).  Once I fixed that, the build went perfectly.

The problem I've got now is that if I try to launch Blender I see an 
error about Python not being installed.  Here's the full output (before 
Blender crashes):-

       Color management: using fallback mode for management
       BL_lang_init: 'locale' data path for translations not found, 
       AL lib: (EE) UpdateDeviceParams: Failed to set 44100hz, got 
48000hz instead
       Warning! bundled python not found and is expected on this 
platform. (if you built with CMake: 'install' target may have not been 
       Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: unable to load the file system 
       ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'encodings'

I built from the VS2015 solution file (MSVC) and I currently I have 
Python v3.7.0b2 installed here.  Do I need something newer?
