Interesting.  To track this down, one would look for the command
that creates tcb-offsets.h.d, and extract it into a very small shell script
that reproduces the problem without Make getting in the way.
This is a bit of an art.

You might also consider trying making c:\b a 'managed mode' directory;
there's some tiny chance that would work around some problems.
See the crosstool howto or the cygwin doc about managed mode mounts.
