I'm just starting with libwww today.

I just downloaded the latest CVS repository and
the MSVC project build files, executed the
instructions in the config/winConfigure.pl file
(after unzipping the MSVC project files), and
did a build of the WinCom.exe project, using
MSVC++ 6.0.  It failed with the fatal error
"LNK1120" as shown below, as it was unable to
resolve the __imp__GetUserNameA symbol.

>Generating Code...
>.\wwwcore.def : warning LNK4197: export "HTSetSignal" specified multiple times; using first specification
>   Creating library wwwcore.lib and object wwwcore.exp
>HTInet.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__GetUserNameA@8
>..\..\..\Bin\Release\wwwcore.dll : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
>Error executing link.exe.
>WinCom.exe - 2 error(s), 3 warning(s)

Can anyone give me any hints as to how to fix this?
(I just did a quick search of the archives and
turned up no matches.)  I'm presuming the warning
(LNK4197) is not significant.
