Description

For a fair while now, the browse_info target in client.mak has failed to
create a nglayout.bsc file.

I think this is because there are now too many files being compiled for
bscmake.exe to finish.

From KB article http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q208/1/55.ASP

"If the resulting browser database exceeds 64 MB or if the number of input files
the compiler processes (source and headers) exceeds 4086 this error will be
emitted by BSCMAKE. "

I don't think we exceed 64Mb, but the number of files might be an issue.

I am able to build a browse file if I use the /Es switch, which excludes system
files' symbols.

If this is an issue for other people, then you might want to use this switch
with bscmake.exe.

I've added the /Es flag to bscmake's options in client.mak.  Thanks for the
suggestion David.  I don't know how many people use the browse_info target.  I
had put in as a personal hack and haven't used it myself for the last couple of
months.
