I haven't been able to build libpopt with a Windows compiler (ie not 
something half ported) nor did I found other existing builds... I'll 
have Jory Stone who worked on the GStreamer port too at the time of 0.6 
and was able to execute some command-lines. Until GStreamer is simply 
unusable under Win32... (of course it /may/ work with cygwin of VMWare)
