Your bootstrapping stops here:

  cmd /c "fc /b gl-tmp globals.h >nul 2>&1 || cp -f gl-tmp globals.h"
  Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

which seems to indicate that instead of running the fc.exe tool with
/c, it is entering a sub-shell. Can you set the PATH, change to src/
and execute that command directly at the CMD prompt? Try also
executing that in the MSYS sh.exe. Let's see what do you find.

That seems consistent with CMD starting a subshell and stopping there,
instead of running fc.exe and then exiting.
