FYI, I was just able to build/install on win7/strawberry/visual C++
express, on 0d7014c.

There's a bug in the makefile that is forcing a rebuild when doing
"nmake test" after "nmake install", but I think this is also present
in master (and probably similar to a bug I squashed in rakudo a few
weeks ago that did the same thing.)

There were 2 test failures that went away when running the test files
individually; I suspect VC++ doesn't like having multiple copies of
the compiler running simultaneously. I include the failures for
completeness, but they're probably ignorable.
