It is one of gmake's undocumented non-features with SHELL on 
windows. I don't know who benefits from it but so far nobody 
dared to document it, either. Maybe an experimental non-feature ;)

Certainly it conflicts with the general rule that for makefile 
portability reasons the SHELL to be used shall not depend on 
individual environment settings.
