Please choose just one GNU make mailing list to ask questions on: it
gets confusing if multiple lists are involved.

Why do you believe that the difference in time taken was due to make
itself, and not the scripts that make is invoking and whatever
operations they perform taking longer on Windows 10?

If you run the scripts by hand from the command line instead of through
make, do they work at the same speed on Windows 7 and Windows 10?

I have no idea; you'll need to provide much more information before we
could even begin to guess.  We'd need to know how you are invoking make
(are you using parallelism (-j)?  Synchronized output?  Other options?)
 Likely you will need to run make with debugging enabled (the -d
option, but keep the output as it will be voluminous) and see if you
can detect any difference in output between the different versions of

Offhand I'm skeptical that the problem is related to make; more likely
it's some other aspect of the system that has changed between Windows 7
and Windows 10.
