I've massaged the VBALink 1.7.2 code into a patch and
submitted it here for reference. I'm not on a Windows
platform, so I can't add it to the Windows project
file, but at least it still compiles on Linux with the
patch applied, no it seems to have done no harm there.
It does make a number of modifications to the Windows
code, so it will probably NOT compile on Windows as-is;
you'll need to adjust the project to include the new
source files in the src/link/ subdirectory. To apply,
run 'patch -p1 < patch_file' from the src/ subdirectory.
