I don't think shell is important on Windows, you can build EPICS in a Cygwin bash shell or a Windows cmd shell without having to worry about it.
 
I suspect the problem is the version of "make".  I sent John the make executable I am using to see if that fixes the problem.

Hi, John.

I guess there's also MinGW that you could try.

I looked more closely at your error output where it says "r was
unexpected at this time" and at the Makefile target for building
stream.dbd which you included in a previous email.  I see that its first
command line is:

  @for r in $(RECORDS); \

I think this for loop will get executed in the shell.  By default, that
should be /bin/sh on a Unix-like system; I don't know what it defaults
to for GnuWin32.  But it can be override with the SHELL variable.  Maybe
you've got the wrong shell being used or your shell is broken.  Can you
find out what shell is being used?  If not a Bourne shell, that's a
problem.  If a Bourne shell, what one and what version?  Does a simple
shell script using a for loop work with the shell being used by make?
For example, assuming the shell used by make is /bin/sh:

  $ cat for-loop-test.sh
  for r in 1 2 3; do
    echo $r
  done
  $ /bin/sh for-loop-test.sh
  1
