(Slapping myself) sorry for my folly.  With your information I
successfully built Make under Cygwin:

autoreconf -i
./configure --build=i686-pc-mingw32 CC='gcc -mno-cygwin'
cd w32 && make && cd ..
make make.exe

correct.  Do I have to manually replace %PACKAGE% and %VERSION%?  Is
there an easy way?
