Follow-up Comment #13, bug #15718 (project make):

Well, you can't assume that just because _on UNIX_ make forcibly adds a -c to
every $(SHELL) invocation, that it also does the same thing in the other
ports.  There's a lot of special code to handle different types of "shell" on
Windows; Eli etc. would have to say for sure because it's tricky to track the
code with all the ifdefs, but it's quite possible the Windows cmd.exe ports
do something different.

As you say, it'd be surprising if this failed so completely.  Can you show a
misbehavior related to this using real make commands?  If not I'm inclined to
think the cmd.exe -c is not an issue.
