Are you surprised?  I already said you would get linker errors because
you don't have the platform SDK (even though you're compiler was only complaining
about that one #define).  This is why I added the DISABLE_NT_SUPPORT
flag...so that the platform SDK wouldn't be required for users only
targetting Win9x.

Yes there are...


Read the section on CVS.  There's a link for a win32 version there.

To answer your question about binaries...the answer is...not me.  I have
no intention of maintaining a binary DLL version of PhysFS...but if
someone cares to take that responsibility...we'd be more than thrilled to host it
on icculus.org.  I might change my mind once we have a solid 1.0
release...but for now, I'm not building any public binaries.

Also, there's no reason it shouldn't compile under Borland or what not
with relative ease.  Obviously, a new Borland project would need to be
created...but the code should compile cleanly.  If not, than that would
need to be fixed.
