I don't know the answer, but I can tell you how to find the answer:
look at the Make sources in job.c, and find out what Windows system
call is used to launch subsidiary programs.  Then look up that system
call's documentation and find out whether it invokes programs via the
shell or not.

If you have Perl installed, it should just work!
