Cool, that seemed to have what I needed.

There was no build support on windows.  I've added it in trunk:


You can see in the nmake.opt an example of what needs to be set.  Note
there is no precise correspondence between windows builds and unix
builds with regard to variables needed.  So on windows they are
slightly different.

I was able to build and link, but I didn't try running since I don't
have a windows instance.

If you svn update from gdal trunk you should be able to build.  I'm also
interested in trying an OSGeo4W package for INGRES support but it is
getting a bit late tonight to push on that.
