Build Requirements

This is the thread's initial revision.

Perhaps we should mention some build requirements? I think we should add information about where Craft build artifacts reside, how much filesystem utilization to expect, and maybe some build time estimates. Any objections to adding this information? Additionally, why is installation to C:\ recommended (what will happen if I don't), and why is MSVC 2019 build support listed as experimental? It ran fine with no abnormal warnings for me...

It built fine for me using Craft with MSVC 2019 given the current instructions but it ate my HDD, used all of my CPU and RAM, and took _forever_ on a low spec machine. Machine is an AMD E-300 APU @ 1.3GHz with 4GB RAM, Windows 10 Pro x64 version 1903 build 18362.418. Can someone else share some stats? Here is my result:

Filesystem occupation after build: 20.3 GB (21,831,225,344 bytes) 247,267 Files, 26,432 Folders

Time to build: 8h 34m

Installer executable size: 73.2 MB (76,759,040 bytes)
