Unless you are trying to build the DJGPP (a.k.a. MS-DOS) port of
Make, you should not be running configure.bat.  Instead, read the
instructions in the file README.W32 and do what they say: that will
give you a native Windows port of Make.

update.exe is part of the DJGPP development toolkit.  It's an
emulation of the move-if-change shell script used in many GNU

But you don't need it for the Windows build of Make.
