You are right.  I am using cygwin make.  The reason is recent
suggestion by Guy Gascoigne.  Until recently I used to use mingw to
build emacs with MSYS tools.  It builds emacs but I encountered a
problem with "grep" package autoload.  Guy's suggestion is to use
cygwin environment since MSYS sh has some known problem.  That
automatically let me opt to use cygwin make.

What is the right way to build emacs with mingw now?
