Hi Bjoern,
    I'd be happy to try to help making up a ppm package of
this, and dependencies, for inclusion in our repository.
I tried building OpenSP-1.5.1 (VC++ 6), but even after
converting some of the files to line endings that VC++ 6
understands, I ran into some compilation problems. But
from what I gather from the forums, some of these are
known problems.
    I see that there is a Win32 binary available; I could
use this to make up the ppm package, but would need the
associated .lib file for easier compilation. Do you
know if that's available from somewhere, or, alternatively,
if a patch to fix the problems on Win32 is available?
