Great, thanks Martin.

Yes, apparently there's something about VC++ 2008 binaries that
doesn't get along with pre-W2K NT.  I don't know if there's something
I could do to fix that (other than switch to an earlier compiler), if
so, I'd like to try.  Meanwhile, I'm not surprised at the build errors
on VC6 since I haven't had any testing of my changes against that
compiler prior to your attempt.  It shouldn't be too hard to work
through the issues with your help or Danny Mayer's, given the always
elusive time.  Thanks for trying.
