User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130

The file mozilla/client.mak is not used for building on Windows. There are still
some references to this file in the build-documentation at 
http://www.mozilla.org/cvs.html#wincheckout
http://www.mozilla.org/build/win32-nmake.html#ss2.4
http://www.mozilla.org/build/win32-debugging-faq.html


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at the web-pages and search for client.mak.
Actual Results:  
client.mak is still referenced.

Expected Results:  
client.mk should be used instead.

It is tedious if you follow the listed build-steps exactly only to get an error
message and a link to the documentation you are already following...

The only file that needs to be updated is cvs.html.  win32-nmake.html contains
the build instructions for older branches which still used nmake and client.mak.
 win32-debugging-faq.html only uses client.mak as a reference to a file that
will always be in the tree.
