I tried to use Visual Studio 2010 C++ Express to see how far I can go. 
I was able to compile all the way but whenever I ran it, I would run
into a crash at the following line inside map.cpp:

glDrawArrays(GL_TRIANGLE_FAN, 0, 4);

I got the GLee SDK from http://www.opengl.org/sdk/libs/GLee/[2] and
recompiled it with VS2010.  I got the Win32 version of freeglut.  I even
recompiled its source but the outcome was the same.  I got the jpeglib
versions 8c and 6b but both got me the same error.  I am curious to see
if you also run into the same error with MinGW.
