[New-bugs-announce] [issue9810] bzip2 build sometimes fails (VS8.0)

New submission from Hirokazu Yamamoto <ocean-city at m2.ccsnet.ne.jp>:

bzip2 project sometimes fails to build pyd file. This is because

nmake /nologo /f makefile.msc lib
nmake /nologo /f makefile.msc clean

is run by bzip2.vcproj, but "lib" command won't create
bzip2.exe nor bzip2recover.exe, wheres "clean" will try
to delete these files without checking their existence.

Technically it is easy to fix this. (Replace "del ..." with
if exists ... del .....    in bzip2-1.0.5/makefile.msc)
But is it allowed to modify external project files? Thank you.
