it's probably that youre using nmake rather than GCC, but i cant be certain as nmake wont install here and the installer service keeps failing with some error about the .NET framework... with GCC:

99% of externals (including vbitmap): s/pd_linux/dll in makefile & add /path/to/pd.dll on the line w/ 'gcc -shared'

1% of externals: a few #defines and/or changes to dlopen() to load other libs like SDL, ruby etc...

looks like MSVC is broken (first error) and your pd.lib is old (second error)
