TightVNC

Hi everyone.  I am trying to compile the source for the WinVNC project that came in the source code bundle from TightVNC's website...

http://www.tightvnc.com/download.html

Upon trying to compile this specific project in MS-VC++6, I find out that it is the only project, of the five that the bundle comes with, that builds from a custom MAKE file.  My question is this:

Where is the file located?!?!  How do I generate it if that is the case?  The file name is "WinVNC.mak" and it is nowhere to be found on my entire hard drive.

Any help is appreciated.

Ah, a makefile ... the great open-source tradition.. using old, primitive t00ls, but ah, how great we are because we use'em!

I just downloaded it, and I can see WinVNC.dsp and WinVNC.dsw in the winvnc directory. Are these not sufficient to build the program? I can't try it because I don't have MS Visual Studio installed.
