I just declared the variable as a "thread" variable. With MSVC7.1 this
is done like :

//proj_api.h : 
__declspec(thread) extern int pj_errno;	/* global error return code */

__declspec(thread) C_NAMESPACE int pj_errno = 0;

I have not tested it in multithreaded environment yet, but at last it
compiles and the library keeps working as before. I will notify you if
anything unexpected happens with it.
