This change breaks the VC6.0 build, with the same error you describe
here. Please revert it.

For the time being, you can probably generate your .vcproj files and
keep around a patch for them that fixes this, because the .dsps don't
change often. Once I finish the .dsp generator, you can write a .vcproj
generator based on it.

Oh, and report the bug to MS. :-)
