lib/Makefile.vc6 and src/Makefile.vc6 (are supposed to) work for VC7 as
well. I sent a patch yesterday to clean up a couple of problems I had
building with VC7, but it's pretty close to working. It may work as it is
for you. Are you building from CVS or one of the released versions?

I bet everyone is interested in making the warnings disappear, if it's
possible to do it in a way that doesn't adversely affect other platforms.

As for solution/project files, I'm interested, but I wonder if it's worth
maintaining both the solution/project and the Makefiles. Given the choice,
I'd rather stick with the Makefiles.
