You are invoking a command that is a CMD builtin, so you need to put a
line saying


somewhere in your Makefile, otherwise Make will use sh.exe, which does
not understand "copy".  (This will only work reliably with the latest
version 3.81 of Make compiled for Windows, so if you have an older
version, please upgrade.)

Alternatively, using "cmd /c copy" instead of just "copy" should do
the trick as well.
