Michael Abshoff already responded to the ATLAS question. I don't have access 
to a 64-bit Windows. Given the volume of legacy 32-bit applications where I 
work, there is no chance of 64-bit Windows access for me for at least 2 years.

VS2008 with 32-bit windows should not have any problems (as you mentioned on 
the Wiki page referenced above). What needs to be done to figure out msvc9 
support on mingw and how can I help? I am a Windows n00b (mostly by choice) 
when it comes to platform-specific issues.
