All the TightVNC releases were compiled using Borland C++ compiler.
That's the reason for such differences. There are corresponding
compilation notes in the file BUILDING-bcc32.txt, within the source
If you would like to compile TightVNC with MS VC++ 6.0, and don't want
libraries to compile into DLLs, use the latest sources from the CVS
tree -- we have fixed that issue recently.
As for the No_Corba configuration, it is obsolete. I'll fix the
winvnc/BUILDING.txt file to reflect that fact.
With Best Wishes,
