Build the intfwin interface is not straightforward because this interface 
(and only this interface) has to be compiled with borland builder. The 
necessary steps to do so are explained at the end of the INSTALL.win32 

I would advise you to first try to build the GTK interface (instead of the 
intfwin one) as it is more straightforward to build. For this, you'll need 
to download the gtk development package as explained in the INSTALL.win32 
file (again). You'll also need to make sure you copied all the gtk dlls 
from this package into the vlc directory (root directory).

Hope this helps,
