I'm trying to use Freetype in an R package (see for information about R). For Windows builds we have built a toolset that makes use of a subset of Cygwin, MinGW compilers, and a few modified tools, including modifications to GNU make so that it finds our sh. (See The installer in Freetype doesn't work in this environment, and I'd like to add detection code and a .mk file so that it does.

Currently if I just run "make", it fails saying that "ver" and "type" are not found, presumably because it detects Windows and assumes I'm running in a CMD shell. Even if I do, I get the same error, because our make doesn't know about CMD internals.

Could someone give me hints about what to modify so that Freetype can detect our environment and build properly?
