Ah, excellent.  I already submitted a bug report about the build errors.
Could you please submit a patch on the SF site for Ian?

I also think there's got to be a better way to link against wldap32.lib
without creating a local copy, especially since the newer SDK's don't
inlcude a 'dlltool' command.  At least, mine doesn't.  I just copied the
dang thing manually out of the SDK lib directory.
