Do you have a directory or a file called "install" or "INSTALL"? If so,
make thinks that that's the target you need to make, and reports it as
up-to-date. You can do one of two things: change the Makefile to add a
".PHONY: install" (a good thing to do in any case), or add
"check_case:strict" to your CYGWIN environment variable (won't work if
"install" is an actual file/directory).
