Well, I ported catdoc to Windows from DOS over the course of a half hour
or so.  So it's very likely that I missed something.  That's why I've
often suggested people use wvWare when possible.  wvWare has people
maintaining it on Windows.  Whereas catdoc's author officially wants
nothing to do with Windows.  I don't blame him, really.  ;-)

I intend to bundle up wvWare with Swish-e for Windows and replace catdoc
entirely.  I think the main issue was a library conflict.  That may not
be a problem now that I've switched to mingw.
