Hello, thank you both - in an earlier test I turned off Kaspersky
completely to check that but saw no difference, but I'm only going on
my memory for that.

I'll check again more completely later today and also try turning on
the reporting for the sed line in MkRules as Duncan suggested.

I don't have an override for SYMPAT or SYMPAT64.

Cheers, Mike.

I don't see any calls to "sed" in there, but there's one in the implicit rule to make the .dll (in src/gnuwin32/MkRules), namely
