I have told this on the ming-msys mailing list.

There is no such note in nt/INSTALL as far as I can see. I do not think I
have seen this note anywhere. It might be one of the reasons that so many
seem to complain it is difficult to build Emacs on ms windows.

If it really works using make SHELL=cmd.exe then maybe there should be a
notion in nt/INSTALL?
