New IVSSDatabase link error after upgrading to VS2005

P: n/a
We've been using the ssauto.h interface to interface with VSS in our own
tools. There were a few hiccups when we updated to the 2005 beta, but
everything got massaged back into working. However, since installing the
release VS2005 (and the latest VSS), this same tool now gets an "unresolved
external symbol _IID_IVSSDatabase" error on link.

Looking through MSDN, I see that the GUIDs are now different, but I'm
hesitant to go changing the ssauto.h to correct for the new values. I also
can't find the IDB (or ODB) that was used to generate ssauto.h, so I can't
just run it through MIDL. Anybody know either a) How I can generate a
corrected header, or b) Where can I get an updated header? The only one I
find in MSDN points to the old one I'm currently using, from VSS6.0.
