SInce GEOS compiles with MingW there any Unix'isms that aren't
already worked around.  

There will probably be some problems with VC6 due to it's non-compliant 
C++ STL implementation.

The easiest way to work around the VC6 STL gottchas is to use the 
STL Port C++ library  http://www.stlport.org/

VC 7 should be OK
