(Sorry, I just noticed that you said you're on 32-bit. So it's just


that you need.

There's no need to run "nmake [...] clean" first, btw... unless you've
made a previous attempt at building in the same source tree, of course. 

In that case I think the "distclean" target does a fuller job than
"clean", but if you have got files from a previous build attempt laying
around then it would be worth deleting the whole folder and extracting
the tarball afresh to be absolutely sure you're doing a clean build.)
