lj-update on Windows?

I'm trying to get lj-update working on my Windows machines that don't have Make, and don't seem to want to work right out of the box.

You should be able to byte-compile the Elisp files from within Emacs, M-x byte-compile-file should to the trick.

You can also run batch Emacs commands from the command prompt, so you could make ljupdate.el yourself by doing something like this:

cp ljupdate.in ljupdate.el
\path\to\emacs.exe -batch -l lj-maint.el -f lj-generate-autoloads ljupdate.el .

Let me know how that goes and I'll update the README appropriately.

Also, you should consider installing GNU Make; I recommend installing it from GnuWin32. You'll probably also need to install bash.
