[M3devel] build problem diagnosis in caltech-parser test package

I guess I should point out that cm3, cm3cg, mklib, the config files are all handled "incorrectly" here.

Randy, There is a recurring pattern in the tree related to this.
Buildlocal (with overrides) should use the unshipped binary.
  Because nothing is being shipped.
buildship (without overrides) should use the shipped binary.
  Because things are being shipped right after they are built,
  or you are using already shipped stuff -- same thing really.
(All tools need to be built standalone, in order for the buildlocal version to work.
Depending -- $ORIGIN is not compatible with running unshipped binaries.
Using full paths is, but requires knowing the paths at link time
and linking differently depending on if you are going to run
from build_dir or installdir.)
To see this in action, search for "override" in *tmpl files.
stubgen for example works this.
This is probably something that needs more automatic handling?
See here:
and then very important:
I have a strong suspicion as well that
sharedobj\src\m3overrides and netobj\src\m3overrides
should be included in the central m3overrides.
(and a strong suspicion as well, as I've said, that this mechanism
is flawed; a better implementation I suspect is to /always/ ship,
but either on top of the running system, or not to the running system,
and then if "not to the running system" passes tests, swap them or
move the one to the other, etc.)

I am resending this message because I think it may have been overlooked because it came out while the list server was flooding everyone a few days back.

I am listing below the verbose compiler output for the caltech-parser\parserlib\parserlib\test package.
This build is from WindowsXP platform.
The problem is the command:  C:\cm3\bin/..\pkg\caltech-parser\parserlib\ktok\NT386\ktok ..\src\Calc.t -o CalcTok.i3

This command should instead be one of the following 2 variants:
1.  C:\cm3\bin\ktok ..\src\Calc.t -o CalcTok.i3
2.  ..\..\ktok\NT386\ktok ..\src\Calc.t -o CalcTok.i3
depending on whether you want to grab ktok.exe from the public bin folder or from ktok's local build folder.  I suspect the former would be the best bet, since the local build folder is often erased after shipping the package.
I suspect the problem is in the parser.tmpl file located in C:\cm3\Sandbox\cm3\caltech-parser\parserlib\parserlib\src
Specifically, the definitions found in lines 11-18 seem suspicious.
Since I am not very familiar with this package, I would prefer someone else to make the correction.
Compiler output is below:
