[Ecls-list] MSVC build errors for latest CVS

I am able to only build on Win32 fresh from a date like:

Cvs update -R -D"2006-02-27 20:05"
With this I can build whith all options turned on..
However to run makeinfo part of the build for the ./msvc/doc dir I have to
be inside cygwin.

Maybe some of the files are moved:
./ecls/msvc/h/config.h.msvc6 -> ./ecls/msvc/ecl/config.h.msvc6

well I have done a clean checkout from CVS twice now (in new 
directories) and build still fails with same issues.
The only thing I change is adding "ECL_THREADS   = 1" to the msvc/Makefile.

I have also done a "cvs update -C -P -d" on my gentoo linux elcs 
project. Configured with "--enable-threads".
I get pretty much the same errors/problems.

Perhaps there is a sync problem with CVS at the moment ???
