I just tried MM 6.13: that made no difference.

Then I tried the snapshot (taken at 01 Aug 2003 07:55 UTC): that failed 
loads of its own tests, but made no difference to the libapreq build

I've also tried MM 6.05: that works OK.

Attached are the various Makefiles (the top-level one, plus those from 
the c, Cookie and Request sub-directories), and a transcript of the 
"nmake" step, from a build using MM 6.05 (which worked) and another 
build using MM 6.12 (which failed).

I'll move on to trying out those alpha versions and get back to you on 
which was the first one that failed.
