Problems building

Hi All, 

I have some issues building the rt project. I tried both variants: ant and
gradle (dunno how fahr the gradle support is currently). First of all I
installed the latest cygwin incl. g++ and make and all these things which
where mentioned on the wiki page. Then Icloned the master and the rt stuff,
copied the jfxrt.jar from my jdk 1.8  and launched ant. This is what it said
(running from the cygwin shell): 

Buildfile: C:\Users\jann\open-jfx\master\rt\build.xml


     [echo] OS name: windows
     [echo] OS arch: amd64
     [echo] Build arch: x86
     [echo] Build nativelib dir: bin

     [echo] Property=Value
     [echo] --------------
     [echo] jfx.root.dir = C:\Users\jann\open-jfx\master
     [echo] jfx.sdk.dir = C:\Users\jann\open-jfx\master/artifacts/sdk
     [echo] jfx.deployed.dir =
     [echo] platform.home = C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0
     [echo] platform6u10.home = C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0
     [echo] dxsdk.path = 
     [echo] qtsdk.path = 
     [echo] wmsdk.path = 
     [echo] swt.path = 




     [echo] Using C:\VCExpress.exe.

C:\Users\jann\open-jfx\master\build-src\build-windows-defs.xml:232: The
following error occurred while executing this line:
C:\Users\jann\open-jfx\master\build-defs.xml:187: ERROR: File check failed,
missing: C:\VCExpress.exe

Total time: 0 seconds

Do I need to install all these libs like QT and SWT and these things which
are mentioned in the properties section of the output? Also I'm a little bit
confused bc it says: os arch = amd 64 but build arch x86 ??? I've also
checked that %VS100COMNTOoLS% points to the directory of Visual Studio. 

I used this environment: 
OS: windows 7 X64 
JDK: 1.8.0 X64 
Ant: 1.9.0 
Visual Studio: 2010 Express 
G++: 4.5 

What else do you need to know about my setup?
