Sure, I know there are two of them.  But the mingw32-make will use sh.exe
if it finds one, and it seems to be having some process argument issues.

So, is the mingw32-make not working with sh.exe from MSYS, MSYS specific?
Or should that not work, or should that be on the mingw list?

I'd take it to the MSYS list (perhaps cross-post on the MinGW list)
for a definitive answer.  TBH I'm not all that familiar with the
internals of MSYS.
