The only problem I've had is if the .mak file has Unix line endings - VC
refuses to recognise it. Swap to DOS endings and it should work fine. Once
you've done this you have to be careful not to commit the updated *.mak
files (unless we decide to move to using VC5 only). I find it easier to
compile straight from the command line. Or you might be able to setup VC5
to use the *.mak files as external makefiles which should prevent it
mucking around with them.
