OK, as suggested below by Christina and Bernhard, I could build a Graal
enabled VM (C1 + C2 + Graal) *without* the need of DirectX SDK of any
sort. The installation instructions should be modified.
However, since the installation of Visual C++ 2010 is rather convoluted
depending on the previous exposure of your PC to Visual Studio (see
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=213290 and the related
documentation for full details), I would like to try a build with a
newer release of Visual Studio C++ Express, which all come with both x86
and x64 backends already built in.
Do you foresee problems with this?
If not, I'll report my findings in a couple of days or so.
