           Summary: Incorrect path prevents build of WIN32 on WIN64 OS
           Product: Ghostscript
           Version: 8.71
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 7

The documentation in msvc32.mak explains to define WIN32 or WIN64 to build the
corresponding target; however it uses this information not only in building the
target, but in locating the compiler on the build system.

So when building the 32-bit configuration on a 64-bit system in VS9 for
example, line 473 of msvc.mak sets the DEVSTUDIO path to where one would expect
to find it on a 32-bit machine, resulting in a failed build because the
compiler cannot be found.

Workaround: Change the path as required.

Fix: Do not use WIN32 or WIN64 in determining the DEVSTUDIO path.
