Follow-up Comment #9, bug #63638 (project make):

OK, then it should be easy for you to build Make by yourself.

First, download the Make sources from here:


Unpack it (you will need tar.exe or bsdtar.exe).  This will create a directory
make-4.4 with all the sources below it.

Then use some editor to change line 1951 in the file make-4.4/src/variable.c:

  convert_Path_to_windows32 (path, ';');

to say this instead:

  convert_Path_to_windows32 (path + sizeof("PATH=") - 1, ';');

Then invoke the build_w32.bat batch file like this:

  build_w32 gcc --without-guile

This will compile the source files and produce gnumake.exe in the GccRel
subdirectory.  Copy gnumake.exe to somewhere on your PATH and rename it to the
same name you had your original Make executable (I guess either make.exe or

That's it!
