I'm trying to build bzip2 under Windows / MSVC

Unfortunately, STDERR_FILENO is *nix specific and is not defined under MSVC.

What I can suggest is to patch bzip2.c to define STDERR_FILENO under MSVC:

diff --git a/bzip2.c b/bzip2.c
index d1f2fa8..d4550a9 100644
--- a/bzip2.c
+++ b/bzip2.c
@@ -150,6 +150,8 @@
          ERROR_IF_MINUS_ONE ( retVal );               \
       } while ( 0 )

+#define STDERR_FILENO _fileno(stderr)
 #endif /* BZ_LCCWIN32 */
