    Summary: Building in Windows98

   Priority: Minor

Environment: Windows 98

Description:
As it is, is not possible to build forrest in Windows 98, because command.com shell doesn't
permit an equal "=" sign in batch variables.
I've done a patch to build forrest in Windows 98 using TakeCommand as shell. Take Command
is not free but it's the only one I've found to do that. There is a free shell, 4DOS, from
the same firma (jpsoft) but it has a limitation of 511 charactars for command, which make
it useless for this.
I've suggest also a couple of changes:
Stop dupplicating commands, both for Windows_NT and WINNT values of 
%OS%. 
Stop calling forrestpath.bat and appendcp.bat from within a FOR loop (there is already a loop
in both batch files so I think the first loop isn't necessary).
