I resurrected some hardware, so I now have a FC3 laptop -- with
ImageMagic 6.6.2 installed, and it does have libWand too.  The thing
is that Windows probably have a different naming convention, so the
name may not have a `lib' prefix.  The Wand interface is their API for
language binding.  (It is the best example I have seen so far for a
library that is very friendly for foreign bindings.)  I'll try to find
some time and update the ffi/magick interface.
