How does the Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition hold up to compiling Dia?  I was looking through the compiling doco ->  and there are mentions of version 5 & 6.

The /mt option *has* the effect to use the correct c-runtime version:
msvcrt.dll. It does not slove other missing libraries if that's what you
are expecting. The cl command line shown by should look like this:

Although you haven't shown it your command line is missing the libxml2
part. You either did not follow step 6. in Steffen's list [1] or the
make.msc you are reading does not have something like:

LIBXML2_LIBS = $(LIBXML2)\libxml2.lib

BTW: are you aware of the first document [2] trying to describe the build
