It doesn't seem to be fine - is that not what you're complaining about?
Given your PATH, we don't know which make might be running, which
rules it might be using, and which programs might be producing your
hello.exe which doesn't run, running a simple "gcc -o hello hello.c"
may give you some certainty and possibly success.

In general, your Cygwin profile should prefix your Windows user PATH with
e.g. PATH=$HOME/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:%PATH%
- append /usr/sbin;/sbin; before %PATH% to also run admin utilities.

Also your Windows user PATH should prefix your Windows system Path with utility
paths you installed and use logged on e.g. PATH ->

Your Windows system Path should be prefixed with utility paths you may want to
run logged out or under other ids e.g. Path -> ...
