IIRC these are for MS VC++.

Well, in my source tree I have two, one for MS VC++ and one for Borland
C++ Builder. And yes, I can build a third one for MS VC++ as well by
just issuing the corresponding make call. However, I have no idea
whether we need both, the only differ in the lib name:

Maybe someone with more Windows knowledge can explain this? Magnus?
