You're posting to the make_w32 list which doesn't support Cygwin make. 
You stated that you have built the beta version of make.  Is that version
dependent on Cygwin or is it native?

The PATH variable of the parent make will not propagate to the child
unless you explicitly export it.  This is a new feature of the beta.  If
you have a native make and if the PATH of the Cygwin shell is different
that the PATH of the Win32 system, it is possible that your child
processes do not have the same PATH as the parent.  If you have a cygwin
make, then please post to the address@hidden list for support.
