If you are using the MinGW port of GNU Make, it will always use sh.exe
(if it can find it on your PATH) automatically to run any shell
scripts invoked by the Makefile. I just tried that with a MinGW build
of Make 3.82, and commands like "./mkinstalldirs foo/bar" just work (I
do have a sh.exe). This works because the function process_begin on
w32/subproc/sub_proc.c has code to detect a Unix shell script and
So there's some other factor at work here. Or maybe the sh.exe which
is installed on the OP's machine has some issues that mine doesn't.
