When you use the standard Make sources, and configure and build with
Cygwin GCC, you get the Cygwin Make.  You should see that by typing
"make --version", it shows its target on the 2nd line.  That one that
is built for native tools says this:

  Built for i686-pc-mingw32

They mostly will.  The problems are subtle, and if you are lucky, you
will never see them.  But they are there nonetheless.

One more sign that you've got a Cygwin Make.
