After a bit of testing of my own I have taken the liberty of promoting
this up and making it "official".

The spatialite and sqlite packages include static libraries (sqlite.lib
700K, and spatialite.lib 7MB) that I believe are unnecessary.  Could
you produce a new version of both packages without these?  People should
use the stub libraries which trigger use of the DLLs.

I discovered I had made the same mistake with PROJ.4 so I took this
opportunity to upgrade PROJ.4 to 4.8.0 and to modify the packaging
to avoid including the static proj.lib.

I have also taken the opportunity to upgrade the GDAL 1.9 package to
include spatialite support and enabled the XLS driver using freexl.

Thanks for your good work!
