Hi,

I've managed to create a native win32 DLL build of Broccoli, using the
MinGW environment (http://www.mingw.org) and the OpenSSL libraries
listed on http://www.openssl.org/related/binaries.html . Evidence:

This is broping running inside vmware on my laptop and pinging out to
Bro running on the Linux host system. (Apologies for the German window
title -- this is an installation of a Windows 98 CD that has a long
tradition in my family :)

MinGW rocks. I was able to use the entire gnuish build environment
including libtool, and moving to OpenSSL eliminated almost all
platform-dependent stuff. I can't seem to figure out nonblocking I/O on
Windows right now so it's blocking for the moment, but it's in the
works.

The new 0.5 release + the windows binaries are here in case you want to
give it a try:

Cheers,
