Then it is msys sh that is broken. Even Cygwin bash knows how to run
Windows BAT files.

I think there is already a note in nt/INSTALL that you may need to run
make as "make SHELL=cmd.exe", so I don't think we need to to
anything. I don't want to put lots of conditionals in the makefile to
cope with all the broken ports of Posix shells that have ever been
ported to Windows.
