error in awt_DnDDS.cpp building OpenJDK7/Windows

I'm on Vista 32-bit and have VisualStudio 2008 Professional installed.

After some days hunting for backslashes, spaces and colons in paths, I
now encounter a compilation error that seems to be known

Does anybody know how to circumvent or fix it?

With this error, and perhaps even other ones I've not yet seen, I'm
wondering how Sun/Oracle can build the binary snapshots if they are
supposed to use the same tool chain that I'm using :-(
I'm beginning to think that they possess some special magic or some
undocumented killer tool.

Thanks in advance for any support
