I meant the values of $PATH and $SHELL *inside* make.

Try inserting the following before that command:

	@(echo $$SHELL && echo $$PATH)

and see what it prints.

Also, what is MAKE_MODE set to in your environment?  What version of make
are you using?  What version of Cygwin?  Please attach (as an uncompressed
text *attachment*) the output of "cygcheck -svr" to your message, as
suggested in <> -- it will contain all the
above information.
