What version of GSL are you using?

I think this should work with the version of GSL-1.3 currently on my
website.  There were some problems with the initial version of GSL-1.3
that I released so I had to repackage it.  If you downloaded it before
7 Feb you might want to update it and let me know.  It's possible
there is some problem with it because I do not know much about MSVC.
