    Changed /GX to /EHsc. /EHsc has been supported at least
    since VC6 and /GX now causes a deprecation warning with VC
    2005. May have lost VC5 support, but see if anyone
    complains. (I have VC5 on CD but not installed anywhere).

    Could not change /GZ to /RTC1 since it is not recognized by VC6.

    The /SUBSYSTEM: calls were commented out in rev 1.5 with no
    explanation, likely a local change that I didn't intend to
    commit. Putting them back till somebody complains.

    The documented command line limit for the Microsoft
    compilers is still 1024 characters
    with the note that is not guaranteed to remain the same in
    future versions of Windows (where "future" means likely
    means NT 4 or 2000). 8192 is likely safe. However, it is
    definitely not Integer.MAX_VALUE. Will address as part of
    Bug 1402730.

    There is already an antlib file in
    src/net/sf/antcontrib/cpptasks which can be invoked by

    Not sure of the motivation for the null compiler and linker.
    If it becomes apparent while reviewing later patches, I'll
    pull it in as part of that work.

    DevStudioCompatibleCCompiler.java v 1.11
