Can't run 'masm386'
I was trying to build druntime. I got this error:
dmd -c -d -o- -Isrc -Iimport -Hfimport\core\sys\windows\windows.di
src\core\sys\windows\windows.d

dmc -c  src\core\stdc\errno.c -oerrno_c.obj

dmc -c  src\rt\complex.c

dmc -c  src\rt\minit.asm
masm386 -DM_I386=1 -D_WIN32 -Mx src\rt\minit.asm;

Can't run 'masm386', check PATH
masm386 -DM_I386=1 -D_WIN32 -Mx src\rt\minit.asm;

Can't run 'masm386', check PATH
Error: 'dmc' not found

Strange. This thing never happened before.

I've hit that before. Druntime comes with minit.obj already compiled. 
Apperently, minit.asm isn't expected to change, so it's not expected that 
minit.obj will need to be rebuilt. At least that's what I was told.

So what must have happened is the same as what happened to me: The timestamp 
on minit.asm was updated (or the file was inadvertantly changed). Or maybe 
minit.obj accidentally got deleted. Either way, make thinks minit needs to 
be rebuilt (which is not normally expected of minit), so it tries to, and it 
can't find masm386 (which doesn't come with DMD or DMC), so the error.

So just:

1. Check that minit.obj still exists, and if not, grab it again.

2. Make sure the timestamp on minit.asm isn't newer than minit.obj

3. Make sure minit.asm didn't get changed.

I just struck this as well after doing a rebase to bring my drt branch up
to date. But the question is, if minit.obj is already included, why does
it try to build minit.asm? It looks like that line could easily be deleted
to no effect.

It looks like 2 days ago someone DID in fact change the minit.asm file.  
They changed the references to LICENSE and README. Your best bet is  
probably to redownload minit.obj from the druntime repo to update it's  
modified date.

In that case, the copy of minit.obj in git really should have its timestamp 
updated too, otherwise people are just going to keep running into this. (Or, 
as someone suggested, just remove the "minit.obj depends on minit.asm" from 
the makefile.)

I'm editing the makefiles anyways, it could be done, but I want to make  
sure there are no other weird dependencies on it first.

Re: Can't run 'masm386'
minit.obj is still there.

I commented this part:
src\rt\minit.obj : src\rt\minit.asm
	$(CC) -c $(CFLAGS) src\rt\minit.asm

That works.

I don't think this is a good idea, minit.asm could have code changes, in  
which case you are building with a stale object.  I'd rather have the  
error than accidentally use a stale object.

Any chance this asm file can be written in D with asm block?

Ok, I never wrote the change into the makefiles anyways, I just updated  
from the repo to change the modified date.
