By which you really mean:

Guys, VC++6 is _six years old_.  It had the worst Standard C++ support 
of any compiler in its time.  I won't hold MySQL++ hostage to such a 
weak compiler.

This isn't anti-Microsoft bias.  MySQL++ doesn't build under six year 
old versions of GCC, either.  It's time to move forward.

If there are problems in the recent Microsoft C++ compilers that cause 
MySQL++ not to build, I'll certainly entertain fixes.

I'd rather you called the macro MYSQLPP_MS_EXPORT.  Also, if that 
EXPORTING macro is supposed to be defined by the modules using the DLL, 
use something like MYSQLPP_MS_IMPORT.  The idea here is to minimize the 
possibility of global namespace clashes.

Please submit a patch against the current version.  Also, if you could 
submit a VC++ project file, I will include it in the distribution.
