OK, thanks for the confirmation. My guess is that it's something to
do with .NET VC++ nmake, as we have recent successful build reports,
and I'm sure both Ben and Adrian have recent 21.5 builds from CVS.
It's probably a trivial modification of the makefile but you'd need to
be familiar with nmake's usage of single and double colon targets.
It could even be an nmake bug or a bad CVS update, as I can't find any
conflict such as that indicated by the error. Try searching for "::"
in your nt/xemacs.mak. I find:
and no single colon dependencies for any of those targets in
xemacs.mak, config.inc.samp, or ../src/version.sh.
Ben? Adrian? Here's the error again:
