XVT does not compile the code -- it is a (so-called) portable GUI library.
In reality, it's somewhat of a red-herring, since it does nothing to help
you write C code that is going to compile on all those different
platforms with all those different compilers.

The place I work just rejected XVT due to the costly licensing
arrangment. It was about $17K (yes, K) for the X/Windows license.
