The problem remains the same. As Chris mentioned, I'm building in the
source tree. I have started a ./configure in the winsup dir. This
configure ignores the profile directory but the Makefile.in in the
mingw dir contains the line

	SUBDIRS := profile

So, the mingw Makefile tries to start a make in the profile
dir which fails. This results in exiting the complete build process.

Maybe it would help to check the existance of a Makefile in the
subdirs before trying to start make, like below (only a suggestion):
