I'm starting a separate thread to avoid further pollution of the other one with issues related with building the branch on Windows.

(I suspect that at least one of my e-mails in the other thread wasn't noticed because it got "buried" by the following ones.)

Anyway, I'm going to commit my fixes for some of the issues on Windows as soon as I get my branches in sync. Which may take some time.

Regards,
Bogdan Marinov
