Build fails again

This build stuff *will* settle down. Please keep reporting problems and suggesting improvments.
Simon's fix to the in-place stuff yesterday was a big step forward. Previously we were generating both a *shell* script (on unix) and *.bat* script (on windows). But it turns out that a MSYS shell can't invoke a .bat script, and a cmd shell can't invoke a shell script, so it was a nightmare to make the MSYS build system work. Simon has a arranged to build an executable instead, which always works, on any platform, invoked from any shell. Thank you Simon!

| Both of these problems are now fixed. I'll be running some more builds today to
