Follow-up Comment #5, bug #15718 (project make):

I was just trying to get the native W32 build to work, as I'm upgrading our
build systems from 3.74 to 3.80. We use cmd.exe almost exclusively, and the
W32 build broke the system because it refused to use cmd.exe. 

I examined the source, and in variable.c, the logic for DOS file handling
depends on __MSDOS__ which is true for the DJGPP build, but not the native
W32 build. The native W32 build uses WINDOWS32 for this purpose and has
separate logic.
