[vbox-dev] Building guest additions in Windows only?

I am wondering if it is possible to only build the guest additions, without
building the rest of virtualbox in Windows. Well, I am sure it is possible
but how could I do it with the current build configuration? I checked the
configure.vbs script and seen that it contains code to build the additions,
but no extra option that I can see to input into the commandline to only
build them.

I tried modifying the root makefile to jump to the virtualbox additions
root makefile, although I receive many errors, and the build fails. Is
their a way to do this? I do not wan't to download the binaries, I want to
build them from source in Windows.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
