JBI, your link gives me an archive with librsvg-2.dll.a. I don't know how to use it with VS2010. In fact, I doubt you can use it with anything other than Cygwin. There is a difference, right? Plus VS2010 never associated itself with .a files.

It doesn't seem like all the functions in the header files were declared with extern though so that probably needs to be changed.

Edit: Actually, I might be wrong. Reading up on it, I've confused myself now. Go with FF's advice.
