There's not much building, mostly downloading.  It is best to keep them separate though.

Have you done a 'nmake -f Makefile.nmake clean' when switching between build types?  Check after this that there are no object files left lying around 'dir /s *.obj' and delete them if there are.  As the builds are done in-tree if you don't clean all the previous types object files out they will cause issues with the build of the current type.
