[geos-devel] Building latest CVS HEAD with MSVC++ 8.0

Hi Matuesz,

I was just offering to donate the Visual Studio C++ Solution files 
(i.e., the VC++ project files) that I have to GEOS.

That is a separate thing from fixing the round function, which stops 
VC++ from compiling GEOS whether you use Visual Studio, the Visual 
Studio command line or nmake.

However, I gather the VC++ community doesn't use GEOS much though, since 
there aren't any Visual Studio files or build scripts that GEOS provides 
that work with VC++.
