[edk2] Latest SVN Update Breaks Link

So digging in I saw there were in the .S files, and didn't look like
building.  So, stumbling around, I finally looked at the Conf templates and
saw new entries for nasm and such.  I went through the process of updating
all my tool defs, setting up the PYTHON_HOME and NASM_PREFIX directories,
and seems to build now except my own batch file didn't do what it normally
does and give me a SUCCESS or FAILURE message so I know if all the nonsense
on the screen should be looked at or not.   So looking a bit more "where
build" I see it's not using a batch file which will break everyone's batch
files since a "call" is now needed.  I think the errorlevel is returned
from the call so it's sample to add call.

In short, you'll need to update build Conf if updating from older version
and adjust your batch files to use "call" for build.
