Yes, he is, but then so am I, and my system works.

BTW, in another thread in this NG, "SHELL variable causing /c: error message on NT", which appears to be a similar problem, the advice to to use the cygwin version of make.

Paul's comment was to lead you back to the Cygwin list for support. If Cygwin has a version of source that doesn't match the official source then how can this list help since this list doesn't know those changes.

However, it's not rocket science. When --win32 is given then expect to use the COMSPEC shell syntax, the command line switch overrides the MAKE_MODE environment variable and MAKEFLAGS just passes to children make processes in the command argv. So the result will be that the parent operates in --unix mode while it's children operate in --win32 mode. Make sure to remove the --win32 from the MAKEFLAGS variable.
