Hi George,

this is still strange. Here are the problems I discovered so far:

My fault, please try it with one '$' only, and send me the output. It shoulkd say "14" (without the quotation marks).

( unset VS_UNICODE_OUTPUT ; cl.exe 2>&1 | \ awk '{ if (NR==1) print $8 }' | \
cut -d'.' -f1 )

The second problem is rmkdepend which isn't found nor rebuilt. Could you send the output of
ls -l bin/
when run from a cygwin shell in the directory where you run make?

Could you also run in a cygwin shell:
make distclean; make
and check whether that builds rmkdepend.exe? Also, please don't mix the cygwin and the dos shell builds - you should probably always use the cygwin shell for now, as it's better understood.
