in the OSE SVN there already is the updated configure.vbs, which now 
also checks for the Qt/win Open Source version.

I'll extend the build instructions for zlib and the platform SDK, where 
A replacement for ATL7 is not planned, as well as some Visual Studio 
projects, since we're not using this IDE.
