mingw make problems

As requested by Eli, I am posting the problems I am having with mingw-make
from a cygwin command line.

I narrowed down the major problem with mingw make and my makefiles.
Looks like a process launching issue.  If the files are double quoted
and passed to a full path command it passes both files as one argument
to the process.  I ran make -d and post the CreateProcess calls being
made.  This is running mingw-make from a cygwin prompt.

---- begin makefile ------

        c:/Program\ Files/Microsoft\ Visual\ Studio\ .NET\ 2003/Vc7/bin/cl.exe  
"a.c" "b.c"

#CreateProcess(C:\cygwin\bin\sh.exe,C:/cygwin/bin/sh.exe -c "c:/Program\ 
Files/Microsoft\ Visual\ Studio\ .NET\ 2003/Vc7/bin/cl.exe  \"a.c\" 

# broken 
        c:/cygwin/bin/gcc.exe  "a.c" "b.c"
#c:/cygwin/bin/gcc.exe  "a.c" "b.c"
#CreateProcess(C:\cygwin\bin\sh.exe,C:/cygwin/bin/sh.exe -c 
"c:/cygwin/bin/gcc.exe  \"a.c\" \"b.c\"",...)

# works
        cl.exe  "a.c" "b.c"

#cl.exe  "a.c" "b.c"
#CreateProcess(C:\cygwin\bin\sh.exe,C:/cygwin/bin/sh.exe -c "cl.exe  \"a.c\" 

---- end makefile------

>From a msys prompt it is broken differently:

CreateProcess(C:\msys\1.0\bin\sh.exe,C:/msys/1.0/bin/sh.exe -c "c:/Program\ 
Files/Microsoft\ Visual\ Studio\ .NET\ 2003/Vc7/bin/cl.exe  \"a.c\"
