Follow-up Comment #7, bug #61409 (project make):

It is unrealistic to ask Make not to modify the environment of the programs it
invokes, because some of the GNU Make features absolutely require to put stuff
into the child environment.  Your suggestion to modify the Make's own
environment also won't work well, because Make invokes programs
asynchronously, i.e. it doesn't wait for the child to exit, and so modifying
Make's environment will affect Make itself.

So my recommendation is to report this bug to Microsoft and to MinGW64 folks,
and hope that they fix it in a future release.  Or maybe a less painful
workaround could be found.

Of course, the final decision is that of Paul, not mine.
