I was able to customize a few features of QGIS in Ubuntu. Now I am trying to compile the same code on Windows, by following the installation guide given for Windows. I have downloaded all of the dependencies using OsGeo4W and struck at SIP. I tried setting environment variables to point to sip site-pacakges too ( C:\OSGeo4W\apps\Python27\lib\site-packages ) I am using visual studio compiler libraries.
Here is the cmake trace
