Not necessarily, but the GNUmake source code tends to use unix constructs

to be slow. I suggest checking out 'Cygwin' (, a
POSIX-layer for use on W32, that comes with it's own (ported) set of tools,
including a 'make' 3.79.1 natively compiled by the GNU c compiler. Works
perfectly for me!

And for completeness, if you're not interested in the POSIX-layer runtime for building your packages but need a POSIX system that'll execute a typical configure script check out, It contains the same version of make as Cygwin does.
