Hi Chris,

Thank you for the feedback - I have tried copying the curl/xdr/pthreads 
headers into the libdap/include folder - and editing the top level 
nmake.opt to DODS_DIR. There just were a number of unclear steps (for 
me) so I'll go back and try again, then report back more completely. I 
will provide the full steps if I ever succeed.

I also gather that the instructions for MSVC  in the GDAL FAQ should be 
completed - I've only done the "atlbase.h" step as that seemed to allow 
the build in general to finish. Any idea if the other steps would impact 
the Opendap build?

I'm using MSVC 1400 (2005).

Cheers, Mike.
