the skipt) told me, it is only used for 64-Bit Windows.
On the other hand, the error message ("FATAL error: echo returned
'1'") was only issued from time to time, depending on the commands I
typed in before. However, the message appeared in a reproducible
manner if I issued the nmake command from within a BATCH file.
I checked the documentation of nmake from VC 8.0 (VS 2005) and from
VC 6.0 to see if inline files can be handled. Since it is possible
and since I can compile Vim _only_ like that, I'm pretty sure this
patch facilitate the life of many users.
My environment: Visual Studio 2005 Express Edition.
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
