Somehow I assumed that if anyone would have screwed up, it would be
MS. Isn't _IT_ usually their fault?
I will spend a while trying to get it to compile on VC6, but it may take
me a while because I have no experience importing new source trees that
weren't built in VC. I have got access to VS6 Pro & Enterprise, though,
so if I can get it built, we would have a version w/o a nag screen.
Ideally it would be nice to build it without a commericial compiler, using
lcc-win, cygwin gcc, etc.
