Sorry I'm so late in responding to this - got distracted on some other
issues.  I just tried updating to the 20060427 snapshot of cygwin1.dll, and
I'm still seeing the same failure:

  $ uname -a
  CYGWIN_NT-5.1 R63324-11 1.5.20s(0.155/4/2) 20060427 13:16:59 i686 Cygwin

  $ make
  echo "root file1" > file1.txt
  mkdir -p sub1
  echo "sub1 file2" > sub1/file2.txt
  echo "sub1 file3" > sub1/file3.txt
  mkdir -p sub2
  echo "sub2 file4" > sub2/file4.txt
  echo "sub2 file5" > sub2/file5.txt
  make print_files
  make[1]: Entering directory `/cygdrive/g/projects/cyg_smb_make_bug'
  make[1]: *** No rule to make target `sub1/file3.txt/file1.txt', needed by
`print_files'.  Stop.
  make[1]: Leaving directory `/cygdrive/g/projects/cyg_smb_make_bug'
  make: *** [test] Error 2


Any other suggestions?  For reference, the sample Makefile is attached here:
