I've done a lot of learning, which as been fun, but I can't figure this last error out. I've attached the error log, and my WIP visual studio script that basically got me this far.

Forgive the second reply but on further study of the build log and some googling around, I think the absolute/relative paths are not the culprit, and that your suspicion about calling conventions may be correct.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5424549/unresolved-externals-despite-linking-in-zlib-lib

Which led to:

http://www.zlib.net/DLL_FAQ.txt

To summarize, CDECL is default and therefore probably what Subversion is building with, but zlib may be building with STDCALL.

I would check if the zlib project defines ZLIB_WINAPI and if so, remove it and retry the build.
