Just for the record since breakpad was mentioned. There is now crashpad (
https://chromium.googlesource.com/crashpad/crashpad/) which is the
successor of breakpad. Its far easier to build and integrate compared to
breakpad. However their GN build files are still very tightly coupled to
Chrome being the prime user of crashpad. For example changing build flags
(/MT vs /MD) requires hacking around in the build files which isn't easy,
but doable.
