The Borland compiler is on the path.

I use a native windows build of tcsh as my shell. No, I'm not running MSYS.

I have the platform SDK in c:/mssdk, hence the INCLUDE and LIB settings.

The compilers are correctly found, each with their correct standard library
includes. This worked fine with BBv1.

The .RSP files look fine; it looks like the VCVARS32.BAT files are not being
run prior to invoking the compiler.
