FWIW I had a little look into this (compiling with VS2005) and it
appears to be linker issues.  When I run reassemble_test.exe, it
complains about a missing procedure entry point "_encode_pointer" in
msvcr80.dll.  This appears to be called from zlib1.dll.

Note that I'm also using the rebuilt zlib1.dll required for use with
VS2005.  Wireshark itself runs fine.
