Uh oh.  I suggested that only because nt/INSTALL says

     (If you are building from CVS, say "make bootstrap" or "nmake
     bootstrap" instead, and avoid using Cygwin make.)

The MinGW "make" is the only Free "make" I know of that works to build
emacs on Cygwin, and it's been working without problem for me for
literally years.  What's wrong with it, and what would you recommend
in its place?

Asking the Iraqi people to assume Saddam's debts
is rather like telling a man who has been shot in the head
that he has to pay for the bullet.
