oh i didn't notice that FORCE2ARCHIVE would prevent MSI from being
built, but looking at the actual instsetoo_native/util/makefile.mk it
overrides PKGFORMAT, so it's not a surprise :)
if we want to build a MSI anyway, then building the archive in
dev-install makes a lot of sense.

apparently that defaults to nothing for Linux and to MSI for WNT.

that's a good question, it depends on what you want to test;
for testing office functionality it's probably easier to use zips
because they're trivial to install (just unzip) and use a private
profile directory automatically, but they don't have bundled MSVC
runtimes or system integration so you can't test that
