You are using a DJGPP port of GNU Make.  That port is expected to have 
the problems you mentioned, since the underlying C library used to link 
the binary lacks the ability to pass commands longer than 126 characters 
to the Windows shell.  (The next version of the library has that feature 
added to it.)

You could use the DJGPP program djecho instead of the shell's echo to 
work around this.  Or simply switch to a native Windows port of Make.
