With the patched cygwin build of make I am having some trouble with
escaped () in depend
lines in makefiles.

all: C:/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/CMake\
    echo hello or something

I get this:

make: *** No rule to make target `C:/Program Files \(x86\)/CMake 2.4
/share/cmake-2.4/Modules/TestBigEndian.c', needed by
 `all'.  Stop.

Did the same work (if you remove the drive letter) with the unpatched
Cygwin build of Make 3.81?

I have the same problem with my patched Cygwin GNU make 3.81 (Two patches
applied, see
The stock Cygwin GNU make 3.81 is too b0rken to run this.

$ cat -n Makefile
    1  all:
    2          test -f C:/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Cmake/Foo/Bar/some.file
    3          $(MAKE) foo
    5  foo: C:/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Cmake/Foo/Bar/some.file
    6          echo foo
$ /usr/local/bin/make
test -f C:/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Cmake/Foo/Bar/some.file
/usr/local/bin/make foo
make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/mk/5'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `C:/Program Files
\(x86\)/Cmake/Foo/Bar/some.file', needed by `foo'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/mk/5'
make: *** [all] Error 2
$ /usr/bin/make
Makefile:5: *** target pattern contains no `%'.  Stop.
