Presenting the cygwin mailing list with a patch that hasn't been
commented on by the upstream make maintainer (or me*, for that matter)
is not a good idea.

I've subsequently (as promised) expressed my concerns about your patch
and, if others have issues, you'll be in the situation of "No, don't try
that one, try this one instead" when/if you adapt to the concerns.

This is why the suggestion was that you take the patch to the upstream
mailing list.
