Please note, the 'trunk/build' directory with manually
maintained Visual Studio C++ projects is deprecated now.
I have no idea if there is anyone using or maintaining it.
I don't maintain it any more. Instead, I try to keep CMake based build
in shape.

That's right, because the old projects do not build C++ library
as DLL, but only as static library.

geos_c.{lib|dll} is C API library
geos.{lib|dll} is C++ API library

Thanks for reporting.
I've just fixed it. Please try to svn update and build again.

This is because the old project files are configured with NOMINMAX
defined. This definition was missing from CMake configuration.
I've just fixed it in the trunk.

I have successfully built using with CMake and Visual Studio 2005.
