[Botan-devel] Botan 1.4.7 VC7 probs... halp? :)

So, I have a situation where I need a cryptography library to work
under both Windows and Linux. Happy day, I stumble across Botan, and
this pleases me greatly: it seems to meet all my needs perfectly, and
even has a comparatively sane API. (A sadly rare thing these days.)
So I download, and unpack, and it compiles fine on Linux (and also on
the Mac OS X box I use for most UNIX dev). But... not quite so much on
Windows. With Visual Studio .NET 2003, I run configure just fine, and
it's building along happily, and runs into:
src\cast128.cpp(131) : error C2326: 'Botan::byte
: function cannot access 'Botan::get_byte'
...and NMAKE (unsurprisingly) coughs up a hairball and dies. What does
surprise me is that get_byte has been getting used in a number of other
BlockCipher subclasses which compiled just fine before this point in
the make routine.
So, before I crack open too many source files to track down what
happened, I thought I'd toss off a note to see if anyone's familiar
with this one. :)
