by the way, --disable-dependency-tracking is a bad idea if you intend to
modify the code.

that is most odd; this can only be the -nologo in
solenv/gbuild/platform/ line 674, but why would it be
mangled to become -ologo?  (i don't have a MSVC build environment here.)

can you try the following:

1. remove the line 674 with -nologo (i expect this to work)

2. leave -nologo in but remove line 671
   "$(call gb_Helper_abbreviate_dirs,\" plus one closing parenthesis
   at the end of line 678 "$(RCFILE) )"

3. revert commit c42a8d41afbd8c49b68046eeb8480e04d4f072c4

which of these result in a working build in sal?  (best to try with
"make sal.clean sal")
