Checkout from trunk does not build due to missing header files

I checked out rev 4965 from trunk. This fails to build in VS, due to missing config.h and wbemcli.h.

I looked at the tagged 7.0 version, and it these header files seem to missing there as well.

What gives?

(The reason for trying to build from source is I'm affected by ticket #1154)

A build with VC14 requires that some files are generated by a Makefile which is configured for Mingw-w64: make config-vc14 generates config.h, smartctl_res.rc, smartd_res.rc and svnversion.h. See also the INSTALL file.

The wbemcli.h file is not provided by smartmontools because it should be part of any recent Windows Kit.

Please note that the official toolchain to build smartmontools for Windows is MinGW-w64. It allows us to cross-compile under Linux and to provide CI binaries here:
