Please always provide information about your environment whenever
reporting bugs.  At the _very_ least, you need to provide the version of
GNU make you're using.

The GNU make manual contains a section describing the information 

I believe a workaround for this particular bug in Windows was

If upgrading to a newer GNU make doesn't help, please re-submit the bug.
