I haven't worked on the win32 interface in a while (because I got frustrated
with tool bars and with using a non-release version of FPC), but I updated
my source and the only problem was a typo in the Win32-specific part of the
code tools.  I've fixed the typo and have committed the file.  The
compilation now goes fairly smoothely, considering you have to type 'make'
three times.  After compilation, the lazarus.exe runs as well (or badly,
depending on your point of view) as ever.

My advice is to type the following:
make clean

If that doesn't work, I don't know what the problem is.

On Windows, win32 is the default LCL_PLATFORM (case sensitive).
