Make.exe is no longer part of the windows dmd binary files?
November 27
I can't build phobos with VS, without it. I have no idea where did the make.exe file go. It used to exist in the previous versions of dmd, but now it doesn't.

I'm not sure when it went away but make is distributed (currently, at least) with dmc, which you are prompted about in the current D installer on Windows.

Realistically we should probably be moving away from makefiles anyway, the build scripts in dmd's repo aren't too big and they actually work unlike bullying VS and make to actually work.
