Most of my time getting this to run actually went into compiling 
Farsight2. The only part I did not get to compile is the rawudp 
transport which is (apparently) used in the  vv branch. There are bits 
that still need to be ported to Windows in that part of Farsight2. I'm 
on my way of doing that.
