Try running make with strace, something like the following:

   strace -o make.stracelog make

While this is proceeding, open another command window and do the following
from the same directory.

   tail -f make.stracelog

When you hit a pause, note what's happening in the strace log file.  This 
should give you an idea of what Cygwin is doing with the time.  If this 
doesn't enlighten you, send an annotated version of the log file to the 
list.  Either way, please report back.
