FWIW, I'm using the same version of cp.exe, and I don't see any such
problem, neither during configure, nor during "make install".

I didn't before and do not since I eliminated that version of cp.  As I
said before, it's not related to making Emacs.  cp.exe from GnuWin32
simply refuses to copy a file on my system.  And I conjecture that
`make install' may have failed in a strange way, on my system, by using
my usual version of cp.exe during configure and the broken one during
making.  But I don't recall precisely what happened.  I simply know that
some components of GnuWin32 don't work on my system.

Not in this context.  But with zsh.exe (zsh-4.2.4.exe) from Cygwin
cp behaves in exactly the same way.

Make 3.80 from MinGW.  I don't recall where I got the binaries from.
