The problem is at least one list which reject duplicates. Since the
error message is too vague, I only can guess what may be the exact 
problem. Defines definitely are a problem.

I could find out one trouble maker: Windows Update :-(
Even if I had disabled all updates, this month 2 updates have been 
installed - restored to preceding restorepoint and now the Makefile 
works again :-)

I'm still clueless about the syntax errors. They don't show up when 
calling fpdoc on the commandline, but they show up when using the fpdoc 
units in FPDocManager. I'll have to check all my installations now, 
which may be garbled from preceding attempts to fix the problems caused 
by Windows.
