Thank you for your report.

This is happening because you are using a Cygwin port of Make, for
which the file nt/INSTALL has to say this:

          Note that any version of Make that is compiled with Cygwin
    will only work with Cygwin tools, due to the use of cygwin style
    paths.  This means Cygwin Make is unsuitable for building parts of
    Emacs that need to invoke Emacs itself (leim and "make bootstrap",
    for example).

In other words, the Cygwin ports of Make are unsuitable for
bootstrapping the native Windows version of Emacs.
