I've just tried to build Perl under Windows NT (and also on Windows XP) and get the following error when running 'nmake test' - 
Error:Failed lib/posix.t 15 test skipped, plus 61 subtests skipped. Failed 1/190 test scripts, 99.47% ok,1/6408 subtest failed 99.98%ok. NMAKE:fatal error U1077:'..\perl.exe':return code '0xff'

The makefile file is attached. I'm using Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 (Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0).

Do you know why I'm getting this error - I have enabled  the USE_PERLCRT option in the MakeFile. 
If you need any more info, please let me know.
