: In the version I have, that line is unconditional. I am pretty sure
: that using ifeq will break the build in nmake anyway.

It is a typo by me, there is no ifeq line in the old version.

Could the ifeq line in the new version be written in a way that handles both
nmake and gmake?

: Is there still a problem with msys if you remove the ifeq line above?

Yes, multi-install-info.bat is treated as a sh script by MSYS (and that does
not work very well).
