Ah.  Are you using the cygwin binary?  Because that is not a standard
version of GNU make.  The Cygwin folks have modified it.  For any
windows-specific issues (of which this is not one) you need to ask on
the cygwin lists, FYI.

Indeed.  You must have 3.81.

Judging by the rules in your makefile you have a C compiler... that's
all you need to build GNU make.

Look at the README.W32 file for info on building on Windows systems.

You should be asking on the address@hidden mailing lists; people who
deal with GNU make on Windows hang out there.

Good luck!
