digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 17253] New: dmd win32.mak error in 2.073.2

          Issue ID: 17253
           Summary: dmd win32.mak error in 2.073.2
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: paul.d.anderson comcast.net

I downloaded the latest D version (2.073.2) to my Windows 10 computer, and
issued the following commands in a terminal window:

set DM_HOME=C:\D
cd %DM_HOME%\dmd2\src\dmd
set HOST_DC=dmd
make -fwin32.mak release

The following error is generated:

echo "2.073.2" > verstr.h
Error: don't know how to make '../res/default_ddoc/theme.ddoc'

John Colvin created a related issue 17165, indicating that a the
../res/default_ddoc_theme.ddoc file was missing from the download. I copied the
file to my the dmd2\src\dmd directory but this had no effect.

There was a recent pull request (#6580) to dmd, which seems to be the source of
a change in the line (line no. 167) in the win32.mak file. I don't know if this
is the ultimate cause of the error.
