Hi Tom.   Thanks to the Etan Fisher I'll tryed as follows, using 
the VC6++ compiler and it seems to work alright:

1) Type on the shell where is your nmake executable: 
                  path=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Bin

2)Modify on zexy's makefile where to find the pd.lib on your HD. 
		(Not sure now if one \ or two \\)

# ----------------------- NT -----------------------
PDNTCFLAGS = /W3 /WX /DNT /DPD /nologo
VC="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Vc98"
	$(PDNTLDIR)\kernel32.lib \
	D:\\pd\\bin\\pd.lib 		<<<<---HERE

	link /dll /export:$*_setup $*.obj $(PDNTLIB)
3) If the compiler cannot find the library mspdb60.dll 
then copy it from somewhere else on your hard disk to 
the directory where nmake lives.

good luck,

I haven't seen zexy's makefile although...
