OK, I figured it out myself.

All works well when you create a command-line project. But when you have a 
gui application, a whole lot of headers get included along. One of those 
headers is winspool.h, which contains a declaration of the SetPortA 
function, along with a #define SetPort  SetPortA.
If you're not using anything of winspool.h, just comment the define 
statement out, and you will be able to compile without unresolved externals.
I suggest to the developers of the perforce API that they choose another 
name for the SetPort() function, e.g. SetHostAndPort().
