These are "archive" files, i.e. static libraries on Unix. On windows,
these are the same as the .lib files.
I'm surprised VC builds them with such extensions. Can you explain how
you've proceeded to build?

CMake is here to prepare a VC project for you. Then, you just have to
build it with VC.
Note that you are not supposed to modify that much the CMake files themselves.

I would recommend to use CMake to create the VC project for you,
because it is aware of all the mysteries of the framework.
Technically, you can just import all the files in VC and use it to
prepare a build system from scratch, but you will need to have a deep
knowledge of how C++ apps are built and take some time to look for the
pre-compiler variables spread across the code.

There is still some VC++ compatible issues to be corrected, but I plan
to process and fix them before the end of december or at the beginning
of january.
