Windows 2000 problem

I have recently been forced to switch from Windows 95 to Windows 2000, and
the makefile I have been using no longer works properly.  When I looked at
the build instructions (for make version 3.79.1), it appears that I should
not need to rebuild the application for Windows 2000.  I did rebuild
following the Win32 instructions just to ensure that I hadn't built the
previous version incorrectly.  The problem did not change.

The problem I am seeing is simple.  My makefile produces another file using
"echo" to write to the file, but not all the information "echo'd" to the
file ends up in the file.  

I stripped down my makefile to a much simpler form, and have attached it
below.  This makefile works correctly on Windows 95.  This makefile should
produce a file "test.txt" that lists the values of some defined variables.
If you look at the makefile, I have included a comment to indicate which
variables are not included in test.txt.   I tried removing some of the
variables that do work, and it made no difference.  I tried renaming one of
the variables that didn't work, and it makes no difference.

Thanks for your help,
