Here's my Makefile for testing this:
all: f1 f2 f3 f4 f5 f6
	echo \#define SYSCONFDIR "" > f1
	echo \#define SYSCONFDIR \"\" > f2
	echo "#define SYSCONFDIR \"\"" > f3
	echo '\#define SYSCONFDIR ""' > f4
	echo '#define SYSCONFDIR ""' > f5
	echo #define SYSCONFDIR "" > f6
I'm using make from "Borland C++ 5.5.1 for Win32" on Windows 2000.
Here are the results for the first 4 cases:
f1: #define SYSCONFDIR "" 
f2: #define SYSCONFDIR \"\" 
f3: "#define SYSCONFDIR \"\"" 
f4: '#define SYSCONFDIR ""' 

Cases 'f5' and 'f6' don't produce output files at all.

So it seems to me that the patch to bcc32.mak should be reverted (as shown
below), but that depends on what the original poster (Mark Morgan Lloyd)
says. If he says the patch is needed, we should figure out why we get
different results.
