One of the problems Visual C++ has with galib is that windows filenames
are case insensitive.  Since the c++ source files for galib are *.C,
vc++ thinks that they are c source code, not c++.  What you get in that
situation are a lot of compiler errors.  I'm not sure if this is the
problem you're having, but if it is, one solution is to rename all of
the *.C files to *.cpp.  You'll have to update a few of the #include
statements that include the *.C files, but then it should work properly.
