What is this?

Avisynth needs VC++.  My API needs VC++ as it acts as the bridge and must 
make VC++ calls to avisynth.  Everything can be gcc.  And in fact I have 
successfully cross compiled Avisynth filters using my new C interface.

The test case included a Makefile for compiling it.

Hu?  As I said I am pretty Win32 ignorant.
