Sir you know quite well that  I have wasted a great deal of my precious
time on libstrophe to no avail. it does not compile with / without
scons. even scons does not install properly.

Unlike the world of unix/ linux if one clicks on an installer in
windows everything works. My other programs in c/c++ work, my embedded
projects work. I do not have to write assembly and install fifteen
disparate libraries and learn another 15 different "construction tools"
just to get something simple to work. 

I am thinking of writing a quick xmpp client myself ...
