This does raise the question of why you'd be using a cygwin version of
make if you need to use colon paths.

When using eclipse with CDT plugin and the "Cygwin GCC toolchain" on a MS
Windows workstation, the problem occurs.
CDT does not understand POSIX pathes in the include directories list.
"g++ -M" commands generates dependencies makefiles according to the include
path given by CDT.
Finally, make fails with "multiple target patterns" error.

Then you need to use instead.

eclipse could understand cygwin like pathes, but I agree with Benoit to
consider this as a bug of make Windows port. It should support as well as
possible Windows path format.

It is not a bug, you've used the wrong build of make.
