In the second, buildconf was run under C:\Users\Cataphract\Documents\php-src and configure was run under C:\Users\Cataphract_\Documents\php-src

C:\Users\Cataphract_\Documents\php-src and C:\Users\Cataphract\Documents\php-src represent the same directory.

nmake clean was run under C:\Users\Cataphract_\Documents\php-src in both cases.
