Vista has radically changed the process of compiling code for the
platform. Neither MinGW nor Cygwin GCC work under Vista without
substantial kludges and workarounds; Microsoft recommends against
VS.NET and VS2003; VS2005 is only supported with the latest service
pack and some known issues. GnuPG will not build with VS2005 without
some major overhauls to the build environment.
While I know that generally the Windows build system involves Linux
and a cross-compiler for Win32, it's very possible behind-the-scenes
changes in Vista will lead to breakage. It may be worth considering
telling people that Vista is an unsupported OS for GnuPG 1.4.x.
(goes back to hacking CMake and VS2005's command-line compiler)
