GNU make doesn't use windows cmd.exe shell

I have a problem with the latest GNU make version 3.81-2 running on a Windows XP system (using cygwin) and hope that you can help me.

I used a very old make version before and wanted to upgrade. Now it seems that make runs in the sh.exe shell and doesn't find the paths for the tools. I need to run it on the cmd.exe shell and tried to set a environment variable SHELL = c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe as described in the release notes. But this doesn't seem to work.

How can I make it to used the windows shell?

Thank's in advance!

best regards

Sebastian Wagner
