I wasn't sure who to ask the following questions.

Any help is appreciated!!!

1. While using the -win32 shell how does one correctly expand an
    environment variable for usage on the command line.  The
    %DOS_VARIABLE% doesn't always expand when executing a command.
    It appears to still be passing commands through the BASH shell
    though the --win32 option is selected.

2. I am dealing with a compiler that will create a target file (
    .i or .obj) with a zero size when it errors.  I need to allow
    make to execute with errors suppressed as "acceptable"
    warnings occur that stop make.  Is there a way that make would
    be able to check for files with 0 size to force them to be
    rebuilt in the Win/DOS environment?  Otherwise with the correct 
    file date time stamp make will consider the files complete and 
    not try a rebuild.
