Hello Brian

Yes, I succesfully compiled it for Windows.  If you want to compile it 
yourself, you'll need MinGW and MSYS.  Both of those package are free by the 
way.  MinGW is the tools set that let you compile the files.  MSYS is a 
unix-like shell emulator that let you configure GMP for compile (so you can 
specifiy which processor you want and things like that).

I compiled GMP optimized for different x86 platforms.  That give you a DLL 
and a header file 'gmp.h'.  Note that yuo'll need to adapt the DLL for your 
specific compiler.  Generally, this involve generating a .LIB file from the 
DLL.  The method is different for each compiler but usually pretty
