For the alpha cycle, yes, we decided to forgo the .mak files.  They were built
immediately before we expected to launch the first beta.

Nuke them from the tree if you like, we can resussetate them right before
we roll each tree.

The problem is - if you don't built the projects, you can't effectively build
the dependencies to export the make files.  That is, there are hidden dependencies
that are only 'revealed' on a build (dropping in config.h files all about.)
So the convoluted sequence becomes:

1. build the InstallBin project from the .dsp's.
2. export the make files from the .dsp's
