Hi Zhonghai,

Thanks for reporting this problem. Yes, indeed there is a bug in VC++
makefile. I fixed it and posted update for makefile.vc on my blog:


Please, follow instructions included there and report if it works for
you now.

This problem does not occur in GEOS from Subversion. I hope next GEOS
package will include fixed makefiles.

p.s. I added gdal-devel list address to CC, so other users are notified
about this problem and solution.
