[Gdal-dev] Problem getting ECW SDK 3.1 working with gdal

Windows isn't the biyatch, this ECW source base is ugly as hell.  I finally 
got NCSSource_3.1rc1_18Feb05.zip to compile as a debug DLL, it required 
multiple code modifications, visual studio project modifications, 
installation of the Win2003 Server SDK, and about 5 excrutiating hours.

That being said, I didn't compile with VC7, only with VC6.  I'll be putting 
the final results up on ftp somewhere once I get this figured out.

PS, it compile OK with gdal-1.2.6 and the \frmts\ecw from 04/07/2005 gdal 
cvs snapshot.
