-Win98SE notes
-- Every time a makefile runs xcopy, there's a segfault in kernel32.dll,
-  which hangs the bash shell with an endless succession of error boxes.
-  The only way I found to break out of this was to bring up the debugger,
-  close it, then type Ctrl+C at the hung bash shell.  The bash shell
-  appears to be fine at that point, but you can never close it (short of
-  killing it via the task manager).
-  Same thing if xcopy32 is used instead.
-  xcopy works OK directly from a bash shell.  The segfaults occur if it's
-  run via a makefile, or via a shell script.  Guessing a problem with I/O
-  redirection, since some other apps can't see keyboard input before the
-  hung stuff is killed.
-  Workaround:  xxcopy works fine <http://www.xxcopy.com/>; free for
-  personal use, but not for commercial use.  Rename it to xcopy.exe and
-  get it into your path before the native xcopy, or fiddle the XCOPY
-  defn in common.mk to use xxcopy instead of xcopy.
