Hi, Dirk.

But what do you mean by "Better use bash from cygwin?"  Are you
suggesting that John should run "make" from a bash shell from Cygwin?
That's what I'm saying is not what I would expect to make a difference.
 What's important is what shell make is using to execute the commands
for each target.  This is why I suggested checking what the default
shell is for the make included with GnuWin32 and checking if the SHELL
make variable had been set and, if so, to what?

>From what you've said above, it looks like perhaps make is using the
Windows command interpreter as the shell rather than a Bourne shell.  So
if John were to set the make SHELL variable to /bin/sh (or wherever it
is for GnuWin32) then perhaps his problem would be solved.
