eclipse and MS C++ Toolkit

I've googled for this, but to no avail.

I'd like to use Eclipse as my C++ editor and MS C++ Toolkit as my compiler - it compiles faster than gcc and the executables seem to be smaller.

Does anyone know how to use MS C++ Toolkit inside Eclipse CDT?

It is possible to create/specify your own "toolchain", I believe. About six months ago I intended to do this until I found out that CDT doesn't work on Win 98 (before you laugh, it was a private mini-project I was doing at home and I fancied using it to learn about Eclipse & CDT - needless to say I wasn't about to buy a new OS just to learn CDT).

If you work out how to do it I'm sure a lot^H^H^Hnumber of people will be grateful if you post it to the CDT mailing list.

I asked this same question some months ago on the Eclipse CDT newsgroup when the MS C++ compiler was released as a free download by Microsoft.  Didn't get an answer then but have to believe someone is working on this.  The Eclipse newsgroups is the place to track this down I would think.
