The Cygwin version of GNU make 3.80 (and below) have some special
customizations that aren't part of vanilla GNU make 3.80.  I suggest you
continue to work with the folks on the Cygwin mailing list to try to
resolve this issue.  I do find it odd that the errors seemed to suggest
you were running cmd.exe, if you're using a Cygwin environment.
However, the folks on the Cygwin lists will be better able to advise

Starting with GNU make 3.81, the cygwin port is supported natively and
doesn't involve any extra code modifications (as far as I know).  If you
still have problems with that version then we may be able to help.
