Ah, thanks, they don't stop my build.  But I had assumed that they would
make my build fail sooner or later.  At the moment it fails later for
something unrelated (

        perl C:/wbkt/WebKit/JavaScriptCore/pcre/dftables
        Error in tempfile() using \tmp\dftables-XXXXXXXX.in: Parent
        directory (\tmp\) is not a directory at
        C:/wbkt/WebKit/JavaScriptCore/pcre/dftables line 245

Yes, that sounds like a good tip.

I won't now be looking at this again for a week or so, but thanks for
the tips.
