Actually it's one of my colleagues who's working on this, but I think 
most of the problems were caused by trying to use the "stable" release 
3.0.0 rc4 which seems to have various things missing for windows. Then 
we ran into the problem that the SVN download didn't seem to include the 
various configure generated files, such as version.h, etc which the 
makefiles were looking for. We switched to using project files, but then 
there were errors building the python and ruby bindings (which we don't 
need). But I think, by switching those projects off and using the 
solution files in SVN, we managed to get a build that we can use. I'll 
let you know if we have any other problems!
