Thanks - I'll try that tonight.

I'll try building it myself first, before trying out the
VC++ 7 libs. There may be problems with using the VC++ 7
binaries in a ppm package with a Win32 ActivePerl, which
is compiled with VC++ 6 - there's a small chance binary
incompatibilities might arise, and in any case, a ppm
package build with VC++ 7 must include a runtime dll.
