That solved it,

I spent one night trying to understand what was going wrong.
Can't believe you found out the answer just like that assuming I was coding in C++.

Thanks a lot guys ! :-)

    I'm guessing that the problem is mistaken mangling, as win32dep.h has
    no extern "C" directive.  However, some other random vagary of the
    win32 platform is just as likely.  ;-)

  Aha!  That is probably exactly the problem.  I'll fix that for the next release - in the meantime, you can edit the header yourself to add the appropriate stuff.
