Yes - because the build process normally uses the Unix "strings" command
to extract the version of the OpenClient libraries from libct.a, and I
haven't ported this to the equivalent Windows calls (mostly because I
don't use Windows, personally)
As Joe Cummings says - I think you need to use Microsoft's nmake utility
instead of make.
An alternative that has worked for me is to install Cygwin and build
sybperl in that environment.
