Quoting "William A. Hoffman" <address@hidden>:

But I want it to use sh.exe.   The makefiles are mostly POSIX,
the only non-POSIX thing in them is the driver letter stuff.
C:/foo/bar.C.   So cmd.exe does not like paths like that.   Also,

Actually the newer versions of cmd.exe doesn't complain with the forward slash. An interesting effect is to execute cmd within the MSYS console.

cmd.exe has problems with long command lines.   MSYS make would
be a good choice, but it has the bad habit of changing command line
options of dos programs into full paths to the msys mount point.

Only for the "native" binary.  It isn't a "bad habit" it is a necessary one.
