Sorry if this not kosher and all, just wanted to inform whoever is
interested that I've made the appropriate modifications to the source code
and it now compiles under VC6++.  I haven't had the chance to test it out
extensively, although I was able to checkout a copy of CVS with the newly
compiled version.

Since I haven't contributed anything yet (and just joined this mailing
list), I'll take a peek at the HACKING and other files to see how I should
go about submitting my changes.

One question though, and sorry if it's answered somewhere already, but
there's no "configure" step to compile for Win32, right?  If so, must we
manually set the PACKAGE_STRING in windows-NT/config.h?  If not, what am I
