Now I downloaded the HEAD revision from SVN and built it from the  
beggining and it worked, my patches are running (I saw mflatt and  
other commited to it after the revision I had).

Now I have a small problem. The ActiveX library I'm using doesn't tell  
me what object it's expecting in it's function. I thought it was an  
array of doubles but it must be an array of floats. I will try it with  
a small hack (wether it's a double or a float, fill both. But I wanted  
to know how to build MzScheme with USE_SINGLE_FLOATS in Windows (I  
just can't get around Visual Studio). I suppose there's no way to have  
a single float without enabling that.
