Just rechecked the issue with msvc and cl.http. Compiling cl-http results 
;;; cl  -MD -GX -DGC_DLL -nologo  -O2 -I"C:/ECL9i/" -w -c 
vn/server/html4.c" -Fo"C:/data/cvs/cl-http-svn/server/html4.obj"

C:/data\cvs\cl-http-svn\server\html4.data(821) : fatal error C1091: compiler 
it: string exceeds 65535 bytes in length

I think this is a really long comment string.

Mingw compiles just fine (and runs fine my tests)

MS-help says:
Visual C++ Concepts: Building a C/C++ Program
Fatal Error C1091

Error Message
compiler limit: string exceeds 'length' bytes in length

A string constant exceeded the current limit on the length of strings.

You may want to split the static string into two (or more) variables and use 
strcpy to join the result as part of the declaration or during run time.
