I might have an easier solution. I've created VC (6 sp3 that is, but I
think the formats are about the same for VC5) project workspace and
project files. If your interested, mail me.

People could argue about this, but if it works for you and you get it
working and can contribute from that environment, I can't see what's
wrong with it from AbiWords point-of-view. :-)
No, seriously, that compiler handles everything we do and it has one of
the (IMHO) best IDEs on the planet.
Regarding 'patch' I'd first go for a recent version of WinCVS. It takes
care of the CR/LF<->LF conversions and isn't *that* bad. If a
command-line 'patch' proves needed, I could probably provide a Win32
binary/port (if noone points to one already ported) from the GNU tollkit
and have Sam put it up. Sam loves to put up useful stuff on the site.
