I don't know, it's been that way for a long time (at least since
2000-09-14), and at 30 minutes each bootstrap I'm not very inclined to
try to "fix it", truth be told (other than the current breakage, of

I don't think changing around the Windows makefiles for no reason is a
good idea. Revamping the whole makefile stuff on Windows would be
good, perhaps (Eli has said several times that the MS-DOS method of
generating the makefiles from the generic unixy ones via sed could
work). But it is quite a task waiting for a brave soul. I personally
have headaches every time I have to fix a problem in a makefile.
