Rob Tulloh did some testing.  He recommended we change the info in
README.W32 to read:

  This version of GNU make has been tested on Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/2003.
  It has also been used on Windows 95/98/NT, and on OS/2.

  It builds natively with MSVC 2.x, 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, and 2003 as well as
  .NET 7.x and .NET 2003.

  It builds with the MinGW port of GCC 3.x (tested with GCC 3.4.2).

Yes, definitely.
