Description
Consider a Delphi project in which a build event must be created.  After navigating to "Project | Options | Build Events" one would like to know the list of available system macros.  To see this list the "Edit" button can be pressed next to the build event to be edited.

Once clicked a dialog will open listing the available macros.  Unfortunately, for a Delphi project this list is empty.  For a C++Builder project this list contains many (not all) of the available system macros.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Create a new Delphi project (console, vcl forms application, etc)
- Choose "Project  | Options" from the main menu
- Choose the "Build Events" page
- Click the "Edit" button next to one of the build events
- Look at the "Macros" list

exp: A list of available macros
act: An empty list

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5533718/build-event-macros-in-delphi-xe/5533901 has the list of macros for Delphi 2010, which also work in Delphi XE even though it doesn't show them.

Thank you for this list.  It should prove to be helpful.
