This is an issue with NMAKE.  Apparently, changing in external command quoting
results in stray trailing spaces.  The 'echo' command in the following NMAKE
makefile ends up producing an extra space, causing the entire build to fail:


This is just one example.  All related makefiles that copy this pattern are now
broken.  The eventual error message is:

    rules.vc(78) : fatal error U1035: syntax error : expected ':' or '=' separator

In order to reproduce the issue, simply clone the Tcl Fossil repository and run the following command from the "win" directory:

    nmake /f makefile.vc all
