Some of us may have been rather busy on other work ...

*I* think I ought to contribute, in areas where I'm allowed to
do so.  Sadly, I'm not allowed to contribute in some areas.

Ok.   Everything went without the slightest problem on a P4
running Windows XP Pro SP1 and Services for Unix 3.5.  On this
system the following brief information may be useful.

% uname -a
Interix msrc-rat 3.5 SP-8.0.1951.1 x86 Intel_x86_Family15_Model2_Stepping4
% gcc -v

Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.3

I can provide config.log and the output from "make" and "make check"
if anyone is Really interested.

In the absence of a distribution containing a Visual Studio solution
file, I can't easily build it under native XP so someone else will
have to do that if you want rapid feedback.
