I obtained the following response from the maker of the VS solutions linked
on the GSL website.  His clarified instructions worked.  Here they are, in
case others may have the same issue:

Hi Fred,

When you load the solution into Visual Studio, do you see the four
projects as shown in the attached screenshot?

If you do, you need to do the following steps to build GSL:

  1. select your configuration (see, for example, Release and X64
     in the upper right of the screenshot)
  2. right click on gslhdrs and select build
  2. right click on cblaslib and select build
  3 right click on gsllib and select build

You should now have cblas.lib and gsl.lib in the GSL\lib\ directory.
They will be in subdirectories depending on the configuration that you

DO get back to me if this doesn't work.  Also don't hesitate to ask if
you have any questions about any of this - I know it can be hard at
first but you will soon get used to it.

   best regards,
