Endless loop while making
Message ID:
At the state that things are now, trying to 'nmake clean' (Win32) will
create an endless loop, eat up all your memory, and crash your computer. I
had about 500MB of memory available so it didn't crash mine fortunately :)
On other platforms it will just exit with an error.
I have a patch for this, but I think the other patch works better, because
as someone said, -C isn't supported on all platforms :)
