Since the offending command is an echo, which is a shell built-in, which shell are you using to build Emacs? It seems to be one that we haven't encountered before, so there may be other problems.

Nothing special: A current cygwin bash (invoked as 'sh') ....

  $mingw32-make which-sh
  [Please ignore a syntax error on the next line - it is intentional]
  /usr/bin/sh: -c: line 0: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"'
  /usr/bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of file
  Using c:/cygwin/bin/sh.exe as shell.
  c:/cygwin/bin/sh.exe --version
  GNU bash, version 3.2.33(18)-release (i686-pc-cygwin)

[For the above: '$(SHELL) --version' added to the cmds for
the which-sh target ....]

Please note that once I apply the patch to delete the dummy temacs.exe file, 'mingw32-make clean' / 'mingw32-make' works just fine and gives me a working Windows emacs.
