Ah, sorry, I should have mentioned that. This is indeed a known issue
and fixed, but so far only in the opensp_1_5_branch branch in CVS. To
build OpenSP with Visual C++ 6

  % cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/openjade login
  % cvs -d...:/cvsroot/openjade co -r opensp_1_5_branch sp
  % cd sp
  % build-win32.bat

should do (through the IDE). This works at least using VC++ 7.1, I have
not had a chance yet to try it for Visual C++ 6. There is also a SP.mak
but I think it is quite outdated and thus unusable, but AFAIU it is
auto-generated using the IDE, so this might work best for you.

See above; I don't think someone published .libs, but I could easily
provide them to you if VC++ 7.1 .libs would be okay. I might in fact
roll the .libs into a developer package once we get around to release
OpenSP 1.5.2.

Thanks so far.
