Godsend! So you guys actually work the weekdays, and slog on vlc in weekends?

Used Debian Lenny. Installed autoconf (automake pulled in along the way), gettext, libgcrypt-dev, 
mingw32, libtool. Put that 2008-05-28 contrib into /usr/win32.

Did the bootstrap and configure according to the INSTALL.win32 file.

`make' fails with QT problem I mentioned before.

I'm gonna try the new contrib you mentioned.

Will let you know.

It seems the contrib folder online wasn't updated to use the latest necessary QT?
