Help - does anyone have Swish-E for Windows NT that *really* works ?

I am failing miserably to find/compile Swish-E under Windows NT. My own
efforts met with all of the problems that I since discovered had been
described on this list. I then tried downloading the version from, but this seemed to suffer from the
old infinite loop problem when you try to search.

I tried making the modifications described in A.S.Igumnov's posting (stored
on the archive as 0239.html, subject line "[SWISH-E:244] RE: Win32
Hangup"), but that gave me the following errors when I tried to compile it

gcc -c -O2 check.c
In file included from swish.h:20,
                 from check.c:8:
readdir.h:19: `_MAX_FNAME' undeclared here (not in a function)
readdir.h:19: size of array `d_name' has non-integer type
readdir.h:27: field `fileinfo' has incomplete type
make: *** [check.o] Error 1

Can anyone help me please ? All I want is an executable that works. I've
got past the stage of needing the buzz of compiling it myself !! Any help
would be pathetically gratefully received.
