If you are talking about source code from latest day (620) then Casey is in middle of a lot of changes and he left it half-finished. So errors are expected. You can either fix them manually yourself, or simply use source from previous days.

Can't build the game
thank you, i finally was able to build 610..

now I cannot start the game because no assets where found. i've done the subst thing so the directorys look the same. but /data remains empty.

A very hard start if the readme is obsolete and the current version contains compile errors

The readme seems to be up to date for day 610.

It sounds like you are getting the message box "WARNING: No assets found. Ensure the starting directory is correct.", is that correct?

After following step 1 your directory structure should look like:
  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 w:\handmade>dir /A:D /S /B w:\handmade\code w:\handmade\ctime w:\handmade\data w:\handmade\debug w:\handmade\dota w:\handmade\misc w:\handmade\ray w:\handmade\retired w:\handmade\sources w:\handmade\tags w:\handmade\test w:\handmade\timer w:\handmade\debug\handmade_nsight w:\handmade\sources\base_game w:\handmade\sources\developer w:\handmade\sources\intro_cutscene w:\handmade\sources\renderer_test w:\handmade\sources\templates w:\handmade\sources\base_game\art w:\handmade\sources\base_game\fonts w:\handmade\sources\base_game\music w:\handmade\sources\base_game\sound w:\handmade\sources\developer\fonts w:\handmade\sources\intro_cutscene\art w:\handmade\sources\intro_cutscene\music w:\handmade\sources\intro_cutscene\sound w:\handmade\tags\fonts 

And as step 3 says, you must launch w:\build\win32_handmade.exe with the working directory set to w:\handmade.

One way to do that would be to navigate to w:\handmade in the command prompt and do:
 1 w:\handmade>w:\build\win32_handmade.exe
