I can't access this site - I always get:

"The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading."

Hmm, the real version.h no longer contains any namespaces or function
prototypes.  In fact, version.win32.h shouldn't even be there.  I
carefully added a suitable generated version to the xapian-core tarball
precisely to avoid this problem with failing to remember to update the
version numbers by hand, but sadly it's not being used.  I've committed
a hopefully suitable change to SVN, but I'm unable to test it.  

Can you try out the makefiles from SVN and let me know how they do?
