[New-bugs-announce] [issue23856] build.bat -e shouldn't also build

New submission from Tim Golden:

PCBuild\build.bat takes an argument of -e to pull in external libraries. 

Either by accident or by design the main build will run in addition. However if you'd run pcbuild -e simply to pull in externals, you might not have specified extra build params, such as -d or -p x64.

The attached patch naively drops out after get_externals has been called; other possibilities might include carrying on if -e was not the only parameter.
