SPECLIST has still got me stuck.  I've managed to set up almost
everything else, except perhaps for a unistd.h replacement.  Found a
dirent.h and a stdint.h no problemo.  This SPECLIST code screams for
C++ templates.  It looks very fragile and hard to debug.  Certainly,
trying to deal with it in MSVC is a miserable experience.  I haven't
figured out if the reason it works at all is GCC specific, or if I've
run into a MSVC deficiency, or something else.

Christian, thanks for the offer of the MinGW toolchain on the Freeciv
FTP site.  For now I will keep going with MSVC, as I have made much
more progress with that than trying to get Eclipse to work.
