I believe Howard used MS Visual Studio 10 to build the liblas components
and we will need to add the corresponding runtime to the msvcrt package.
I have created a ticket for this issue:


and I will make an attempt to address it myself if I can.   Otherwise we
will need to wait for Howard to return from the lidar conference to address
