Bug description

While making changes to the Win32 libraries I have noticed that the make process continues after error, making it hard to spot build failures.

The problem is in Makefile.nt, where there is code like this

for i in $(OTHERLIBRARIES); do $(MAKE) -C otherlibs/$$i install ; done

The body of the "for" should be changed to
do $(MAKE) -C otherlibs/$$i || exit $$?

This is already done in the Unix Makefile.
