This MSDN page:

  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384274(v=vs.85).aspx

gives a clue: when a 32-process runs on 64-bit Windows, Windows
"fixes" its environment such that PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE gets the
value "x86" expected by 32-bit Windows processes.

So the question now becomes: how come GNU Make, which is supposed to
be a 32-bit executable, got a value that is not x86?  What did you do
differently at those previous attempts to build Emacs?
