Our current strategy of checking in sources for GDAL to build on windows is not tenable with 3.x.

GDAL 3.x requires PROJ >= 6, so that would require us to check in sources for PROJ as well.

PROJ itself has dependencies on a whole assortment of other libraries.

The end result is an exponential explosion of library sources we have to check in.

Our efforts are better focused on extending our CMake build support over to Windows so we can offload most/all of our 3rd party libs to the responsibility of a tool like vcpkg
