Two lines of lib-src/makefile.w32-in contain curly brackets which are
not allowed by NMAKE (MSVC 2003).
 I can successfully compile on Windows XP Home after applying the
enclosed patch.

Note that this bug has been present since the emacs-23.1.91 pretest
(I've been mostly running Ubuntu on this machine lately.) This leads
me to believe there's not much interest in compiling with Microsoft's
seven year old compiler. It's rather awkward to make this work since
the user needs to download a new version of rc.exe to build the emacs
icon. It seems to me there's no real advantage in continuing to
support MSVC.
 Nevertheless, I will continue to (occasionally) report any obvious
bugs as I find them.
