Building 5.8.5 on Windows
Message ID:
I'm trying to build 5.8.5 on Windows to track down a test failure  
that's been reported for TAP::Parser. I'm not having much success :)

I'm using MS VC++ 2005 Express. With the default win32/Makefile it  
can't find "windows.h". Fix that and it can't find "user32.lib". Fix  
that and can't find "windows.h" again, this time while trying to run  
xsubpp with miniperl.

Before I spend any more time on it is it expected to Just Work with VC 
++ 2005? And if not does anyone have a patched Makefile kicking  
around? Even a Makefile for something other than 5.8.5 would be  
helpful; I could compare it the the vanilla version and get a clue  
what I need to change.
