I even managed to change the msg when make was broken. What happens is
the stub is assembled, but then into a header file, in hex (0x11, 0x123
etc), this header file is then included into stubify. If you want to
modify STUBIFY.EXE directly, don't modify it's stub at the start, modify
the second stub in the middle of the program.
