The reason is that the layout of the SOAP packages changed, AFAIR with
2.7.13. We are still using version 2.7.12. It might help (I did not
test this for Windows) to add the following settings to your LocalConfig.kmk
(which resides in the root directory of the tree):

  VBOX_GSOAP_CXX_LIBS := libgsoap++

The first statement will ensure that stdsoap2.cpp is not required
anymore. The second statement should ensure that the static library
which contains the object code of stdsoap2.cpp is added. Again, I
did not test this on Windows and you might have a look at


to get an understanding what's happen. Or just disable webservice

Kind regards,
