Some googling shows there is hope:


2003-06-18  Earnie Boyd  <earnie at users.sf.net>

	* Makefile.in (LIBS): Add new MSVCRT libraries libmsvcr70 and
	libmsvcr71, including debug versions.
	(msvcr70.def, msvcr70d.def, msvcr71.def, msvcr71.def): New targets.

So atleast the part of linking with msvcr71.dll should be
possible. As I said, I cannot imagine what else might be a problem.
