When was the last time the VisualC compiler was tested? (I assume it was
tested).  Looking in the cvs repository, it seems that, checking out now,
one, two, three and four years ago, ntwin32.mak was required by NT_MAKFILE
and was not there.  I also see that there has never been an ntwin32.mak, as
it is not in the directory or the attic.  The line also seems to have been
commented out of the Makefile at some times.

It is certainly not something that will be fixed by moving to the latest
version of the compiler.
