At the time I started hacking at this, GNU make didn't really
work properly on Windows, which is why I picked dmake.  GNU make
also didn't have support for doing things like creating response
files on the fly (though I'm sure you can work something out
between bash and GNU make if you really tried).

Is the situation with GNU make any better now on Windows?
