I have no idea about MicroSoft C-compilers! Anyone else?
OK. I just looked again at the errors and now I realize what has happened. The H5Part.c and H5Block.c files are declaring variables within the body of the function (i.e. not at the start of the function scope). According to c99 or some other spec, the variables should be defined before use. I can't find a flag in MSVC to turn off this checking.
When compiling as C++, the restriction is lifted and there's no problem.

gcc seems to just allow this without complaint, probably there's a flag to turn on checking if anyone wanted.

Perhaps I should modify the originals to conform properly, though I'm not sure its worth the effort.
