I have started using cygwin-make in a project and want to
create a "clean" target;


RM = rm
SRCPATH = e:\web\html\nms\generalsetup

	$(RM) $(SRCPATH)\*.class

The output I get on the command line is(win2000 cmd.exe):

E:\web\html>make -f nms\generalsetup\makefile clean
rm e:\web\html\nms\generalsetup\*.class
rm: e:\web\html\nms\generalsetup\*.class: No such file or directory
make: *** [clean] Error 1

The following works:

	$(RM) $(SRCPATH)\GeneralSetupApplet.class
	$(RM) $(SRCPATH)\GeneralSetupApplet$$1.class
	$(RM) $(SRCPATH)\GeneralSetupAppletGUI.class
	$(RM) $(SRCPATH)\GeneralSetupAppletGUI$$1.class
	$(RM) $(SRCPATH)\GeneralSetupAppletStrings.class

Has anybody any ideas?
