Next try. Only one target sdk2003. Given the current makefile structure,
it seems to make more sense to have additional makefiles. Makefile.vc6
implies to me Microsoft Visual C++ 6 and not other environments.
Differences include compiler options and included libraries. Also, based
on previous experiences, conditional logic in makefiles, particularly
cross-platform makefiles, does not work well.
