COMMAND.COM _is_ a shell on DOS/Windows platforms.  The ported Make 
should know that `del' is a COMMAND.COM builtin, and should invoke 
COMMAND.COM when it sees that command in a rule.

If SHELL is set in the environment to something Unixy, like a port of 
Bash, then " /c del" instead of just "del" should be used.
