[Kst] Howto enable DirFile support on kst-2.0, WinXP platform?

We're using kst 1.8 on native Linux desktops to plot a large amount of
data in binary DirFile format, and it works well.
However, for end-user reasons, now it becomes necessary to plot the same
data on WinXP. The kst 2.0 port looks promising, but neither the
precompiled kst-2.0.0-beta2, nor a fresh local build from SVN seem to
include this DirFile support.
It seems likely that the getdata plugin is needed, however, I can't make
it build under cygwin - ./configure works, but the make throws a huge
number of system header errors during compile.
- Has anyone used DirFile / getdata under WinXP?
- If you can give me a quick HOWTO, that would be great.
Also, please help with a gap in my understanding.
The product of building getdata is libgetdata.so.1 (presumably .dll
However, shouldn't there also be a plugin named something like:
The alternative is presumably to convert all the data to ascii,
however there will be about 50 shots, each 64 channels, 20K
points/channel, so I'm concerned that Ascii will be very slow - not
least since this data is hosted on a samba-export from an embedded
system - and in any case, the embedded system already generates DirFiles
which are a really good fit for this application!.
Thanks in advance
