Under C Builder 6 (Free: as in Beer, home-made wine and ....  {usw}  )  
there's a file under /biblecs/cbuilder6 (in the repository) called 
swordprj.bpg and this has all you need for building the library and the 
Sword for Windows frontend.  (Sigh!) unfortunately in  your system ...  
(WinDoze .... !!!!)  the libraries are not compatible with anyone else's 
- (especially those of the paranoid Gates person).  Can't we stick with 
a REAL system like GNU? (and DevC++ and GTK+ and QT4) and all the stuff 
of the future when 'Bill Gates' body lies a' mould'ring in the grave 
...... USW ....  (Martin might want to tell you what USW might mean).  
Roll on the true cross platform Sword thingy   ....

God bless,
