I've been letting my nightly automated build system fail on the CVS feature release branch for a very long time (many months), and nobody seems to care or be doing anything to correct the failure.

I have two questions:

1) Is it no longer useful to anyone for me to continue building CVS on a nightly basis for test purposes? I volunteered to do this a long time ago because I thought it would be useful/beneficial to CVS developers/maintainers to see if/when their commits broke the build. However, the fact that the build has been broken for many months now and nobody has shown any concern over it suggests that it might be a waste of time (albeit very little time, especially since it is automated!).

2) Even if it is not useful to the developers/maintainers, it seems obvious that fixing this (or offering a solution) would certainly help those who build CVS on their own Windows machines if/when they download the CVS sources. Perhaps there is something I must do on my end to allow the build to succeed (cvs1-11-x-branch is fine, btw), but I have no idea what that might be because I normally leave that up to whoever is supposed to be maintaining the Windows builds and commit the fixes to the repository. Is there a problem with how my system invokes the Windows build?

My nightly build is executed like this (in a batch file invoked as a scheduled task):

call vcvars32.bat
NMAKE /A /I /f "cvsnt.mak" CFG="cvsnt - Win32 Release"

...which has been failing with the 'inttypes.h" error (see below) for many months. I'd love to get this fixed and get the nightly build back on track. Can anyone offer insight into how it could/should be corrected?
