I couldn't get the 0.9.2 stuff to compile either, however if you follow
the CVS tree, there are a couple of newer files, ibpp.cpp and
_internals.h (there may be one or two more), and the MSVC project
files (ibpp.dsw, ibpp.dsp) are also missing from 0.9.2 once you get
the newer files, it should almost compile clean, except for a couple
of float errors in _xsqlda.c. Simply change those lines to cast the
whole calculation

so the line

_Floats[varnum-1] = *(__int64*)var->sqldata / divisor;


_Floats[varnum-1] = (float)(*(__int64*)var->sqldata / divisor);

It should then compile completely clean.
