Running a batch file within a makefile

I am trying to have my makefile, which builds the code for my project, call a batch file before it starts parsing the targets.  The purpose of the batch file is to set environment variables, so that every developer doesn't have to manually put them into their System's environment variables.
I am using Windows 2000, and cmd.exe as my "shell" program.
I would like to be able to open a DOS prompt window, type "gmake <build options>", and have the environment set with the proper values BEFORE building the code.
Has anyone tried this (and had success)?
P.S. Opus Make has a command called '%setenv', which allows you to set environment variables in the makefile.
I can't find any such similar command in GNU make.
