This seems to be happening because of an issue with IFS getting set to something other than simply ":" in AC_CHECK_PROGS (which didn't happen with darin's autoconf 2.13 checkin while the automatic configure sync wasn't happening). The result is that windows with spaces in the path have those directories chopped up, preventing the check from finding progams which have spaces in the path to them, such as /cygdrive/c/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio/ I'm not sure what the right fix is, but there's a fix that simulates what happens with ml currently (which is also in one of the space-in-directory-name paths). I'll post that momentarily.
Created attachment 122314 [details] [diff] [review] this patch gets the build working on the verification system It assumes midl is in the path, along with the other things defined there (cl, ml, etc.)

marking fixed, we can reopen this if there's a portability problem with not handling spaces in pathnames.
