Off course, my build is for native Windows.

I konw nt/INSTALL.
|    cygwin compiled make 3.80:           fails?[6]     fails?[6]
|    cygwin compiled make 3.81:           fails         fails?[6]
|    mingw32 compiled make 3.79.1:        okay          okay
|    mingw32 compiled make 3.80:          okay          okay[6]
|    mingw32 compiled make 3.81:          okay          okay[7]
|  Notes:
|    [1] doesn't cope with makefiles with DOS line endings, so must mount
|        emacs source with text!=binary.
|    [2] fails when needs to invoke shell commands; okay invoking gcc etc.
|    [3] requires LC_MESSAGES support to build; cannot build with early
|        versions of cygwin.
|    [4] may fail on Windows 9X and Windows ME; if so, install Bash.
|    [5] fails when building leim due to the use of cygwin style paths.
|        May work if building emacs without leim.
|    [6] not recommended; please report if you try this combination.
Then I reported that I succeeded with "cygwin compiled make 3.80:"

Off course, before configuration, I had to make un-comment 3 lines in
nt/gmage.defs like as attached patch. Then the binary, I bulld, works well.

Thank you for your explanation. I hope that nt/INSTALL have some sentences
like you expalined.
