Very good question indeed :-) It's probably because when I rewrote the
bootstrap build I used what was being done before of compiling every
file regardless of platform. As it was the responsibility of the file to
decided if it should included any code. I'm changing and testing not
including all those files, now that CVS is back.

Just checked in a fix to build.bat. Need to do the same for now.
