Ok, I'm confused.
The source code is based on SwishLib 2.0.5.
I just downloaded 2.0.5 and built it and I don't see the library. I can't
remember when Jose added the library to swish, so I'm a bit confused that
swishex is based on the swish-e library in version 2.0.5.
Sometimes it's easier to start over.
Thanks to David Norris, current versions of Swish-e take a lot less work
to build on Windows. See the src/win32 directory.
This is the kind of stuff that made me switch to Linux for development. ;)
