No significant issues with this on MS Windows, building in the MSYS shell 
with MinGW.

I built with both a 32-bit gcc-4.5.2 (from mingw.org) and a 64-bit gcc-4.7.0 
(from mingw64.sf).
In both instances 'make check' passed its tests.

As regards the 64-bit build, I find this in my notes that I kept from the 
4.7.0 build:

"There's a conflict between winreg.h and projects.h in that both define a 
PVALUE type. (Only matters when
perl gets involved, and only then with x64.) So I replaced the PVALUE in 
projects.h and pj_param.c with _P_VALUE.)"

I expect this 64-bit-only issue still exists for me with 4.8.0, though I 
haven't actually tested.
If someone wants to circumvent the problem for me, that would be nice. 
Otherwise I'll just apply the same fix if needed ... it's not really a 
problem :-)

For anyone who is curious about the reference to perl, "perl gets involved" 
when I build the "PDL" perl extension.
