Which makes me wonder how hard it would be to build GnuPG 1.4.11 with MS
Visual Studio. Back in the pgp 2 days I put a VS 5 (antique version)
project file for pgp 2.6.3ia on my site to create a win2 binary - better
than the distributed MS-DOS binary, at least it could handle long
filenames. That was easy - just put all the .c files in the project.

I'll just have to try.
