WINAPI is used by Windows to define __stdcall, it is needed for callbacks
that need to be exposed by the caller since the high level languages I work
with only generate stdcall callback prototypes. It can also be used to
declare exported methods to be called, but most high level languages can
call other declarations.

The dsp patches applied cleanly against the released 1.1 source, which is
what they were generated against. I'm confident they also applied against
the 1.1.1-20090702 snapshot I've been using; can I ask whether the version
you're using has changed since then, for example are they still VC6
compatible? If it's a problem I'm sure they can safely be ignored.

I found it under the thread rooted at:

I've updated it to work with the 1.1 tree and it certainly works fine for
the cases I use! I didn't have time to make any other changes, such as
stubs for GnuTLS as was suggested, but if you want the updated diff I can
send it over.
