Please use the address@hidden list for any Windows-related issues with
GNU make.  Thanks!

All I can offer is that you be sure you've read and understood the
information in the README.W32 file, where SHELL handling is discussed.
There is also a little bit of information about this in the GNU make

Other than that, see if anyone on address@hidden can help.
