The free Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 do not contain platform SDK,
therefor, you should get the newer .lib and .h files another way ;)
I've used Visual C++ 2003 (the compiler and the one in the Visual C++
Toolkit 2003 is just the same) to compile Vim for some days, and it
seems work fine.
Gdb can be used as debugger in Win32 too.
