I've just configured a Windows7 machine and confirmed that setting up
build tools to compile GCL on Win7 should be done following the
published directions for WinVista.
(In fact, as some who have followed previous discussions on this list
know, building GCL on an updated WinXP machine requires that one
follow the published directions for Vista rather than XP -- this owing
to what we can call the `Vistafication' of WinXP as patches are
I'll be updating the directions soon and can make those available to the group.
