After some months of being able to regularly compile current head using
Visual Studio 2010 compilers and some more tests I no longer see any
reason why this patch would change without external feedback.

I've tested the latest version (
with the following for x86

$config->{perl} = 'C:\Perl'; # ActivePerl 5.8.9 Build 829
$config->{tcl} = 'C:\Tcl'; # ActiveState ActiveTcl
$config->{python} = 'C:\Python27'; # Python 2.7.1
$config->{openssl} = 'C:\openssl'; # openssl-1.0.0d
$config->{nls} = 'C:\Dev\gnuwin32'; # GetText 0.14.4
$config->{krb5} = 'C:\Dev\kfw-3-2-2-final';
$config->{xml} = 'C:\Dev\libxml2-2.7.7.win32';
$config->{xslt} = 'C:\Dev\libxslt-1.1.26.win32';
$config->{iconv} = 'C:\Dev\iconv-1.9.2.win32';
$config->{zlib} = 'C:\Dev\zlib125';

for x64 I've tested a less extensive configuration as it's still hard to
get the above libraries as x64 binaries.

I'd appreciate any reviews, tests or comments.

If someone with some more C skills than me could silence the warnings
this would be a huge gain for build speed and testing. My previous
attempts silenced the warnings but built a non-connectable backend.
