The mail list isn't the best place to document this; very few people  
(including developers) will take the time to go back digging through  
old posts except as a last resort.  Hence these need to be well- 
documented AND easily accessible.  Relevant changes need to be made  
everywhere that testing or using make/nmake is mentioned in CVS or  
the wiki.  For the testing case I raised, maybe adding something to  
the various INSTALL docs and the FAQ would be a good start.
