SHELL == %COMSPEC% because MAKEFLAGS contains --win32.

I am trying to help someone get Mozilla building on W2K but we can't get it to work because, it appears, the value of SHELL is being set to cmd.exe (i.e. COMSPEC). It is being run from the cygwin bash shell.

My setup works fine so I am looking for differences. I got him to run make with -p and send me the output. The relevant bits from this are:

# environment
COMSPEC = C:\WINNT\system32\cmd.exe

# environment

# makefile
SHELL = C:/WINNT/system32/cmd.exe

# makefile
MAKEFLAGS =  --win32 -p
