Wow, those HTFile_dirent_buf_size bits have been problematic.  Is there 
anyway to find out what the macro 'DIR' (data type of directory stream 
objects) resolves to on your system ?  In general this structure is 
opaque to users of the dirent.h supplied definitions . . .

Help us help you ! 

Can you add the appropriate compiler switch to have the results of the 
preprocessor output?  This way we can add appropriate defintions (to 
www.sys.h) for your version of MSVC . . .
