I'm going to close this github issue, since we are using a mixed workflow which only uses github pull requests, and keeps bug/issue tracking on our RT instance at krbdev.mit.edu. Please follow-up with mail to email@example.com.
That said, I believe the current git master (6649798) is buildable on windows, at least on my test system which is running Windows 7 Enterprise and using Visual Studio 2010. Perhaps I should have a test system with Visual Studio 2013 around just on general principles; I'll see if I can work on that.
The first thing that comes to mind as a potential issue is the availability of 'awk', though I don't remember its absence presenting in this fashion. In the command prompt from which you're running nmake, can you successfully run awk (just 'awk' should print a usage message)?
If that works as expected, can you send the full list of what you did for each of the steps 1 through 6 in your email? I am also slightly curious what the error message looks like when Strawberry Perl is used, though I agree with you that the perl is unlikely to actually be the culprit.
