Yes, that turned out to be the problem.

Using mingw32-make instead of cygwin's make worked and built successfully.

I have been trying to compile Emacs Pretest 23.1.92 on Windows 7
(cygwin, MinGW, GnuWin32) but haven't had any luck.

I run

configure.bat --no-debug --with-gcc --without-png -cflags


make bootstrap
If you are building the pretest, you don't need to bootstrap, just
type "make" after the configure step.

If that doesn't help, I suspect that your combination of Cygwin and
MinGW tools does not work to build the native port of Emacs (see
nt/INSTALL for some combinations that are known to work).  E.g., it
looks like your Make is a Cygwin port, which is known to fail.  It is
best to use only MinGW tools for the build.
