When I build on Vista I'm getting the following errors in Javascript core

Performing Pre-Build Event...
Project : error PRJ0002 : Error result 1 returned from

I tried within VC++2005 hoping to see more error info and found:
1>------ Build started: Project: JavaScriptCoreGenerated, Configuration:

1>make: *** [chartables.c] Error 255

I had read through the script files, verified disk space and that I could
write to /tmp/ from cygwin prompt.

What is going wrong here?
