Not sure how relevant this as (as you point out VC6 is ancient), but
trunk won't build with VC6. Attached is a portion of a patch
(trivially modified) sent to me off list by David Darj that is needed
to get trunk to compile with VC6. David's original patch includes
changes to support building the Perl bindings, too.

It is not ready to be committed and I'm not suggesting it (I haven't
even tried to run the tests), this is just FYI.

Is the project going to support building with VC6? Or skip it because
it's too old?
