Andy, thanks for this link. I replaced my nmake.exe with this one and 
the tests now pass.

Slightly confusing because both executables say they are version 1.5 and 
I downloaded mine from microsoft.com only recently.

In case others have this problem later, the obvious difference I can see 
is that nmake.exe from the above link is 50.7KB whereas the one I had 
(i.e. the broken one) is 64.0KB.
