hmm, i don't know. this is what get's included by the relevant files:

if they are in mingw, i would be happy.

yes, i am only talking about the SDKs here (XCode is an IDE, isn't it?): 
packages providing header-files to include and library-files to link 
against. nothing that fummels with the registry or the like.
it's fine if we don't have to include them in the pure-data svn.

iirc, last time someone was trying to build gem4win32 with mingw/cygwin 
(i think it was thoralf; but i could be mistaken - excuse my ignorance), 
they had to patch the DirectShow-headers...
