Re: [h-e-w] Build fails on Windows with cygwin

At the time that I attempted to build emacs on cygwin, there was exactly
one make in my PATH which was cygwin's.  I used the default make that is
packaged with cygwin and that's where I got the error.

In any case, I didn't follow up on the issue because I'm actually trying
to work on emacs-nt resolving cygwin paths correctly without
cygwin-mount.el and since cygwin-emacs does that anyway it wasn't worth
pursuing.  You can see the discussion at
