I'm trying to compile the svn version (, but I'm experimenting
a lot of troubles (I had to install Visual C++ Express 2005, etc.) -
Windows XP SP2

Has anyone already done it? It would be very nice if you coul help me.

Actually, I need it to solve the highlight bug (I also get the segfault
message when I use the highlight function).

I want to precise something: the problem is during the nmake process
(nmake is okay, but not the thing the compilator does with cl.exe)
