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.

Yes, I understand that. The problem I have is where is MAKEFLAGS being set. It isn't on the command line and neither --win32 nor --unix is being passed on the command line. MAKEFLAGS appears to be being set to empty by configure.

Thanks anyway. I'll go to the cygwin lists.

You'll probably get more help in the Mozilla lists. I'd suspect some make include file. Try ``grep -r win32 *'' in your source tree.
