I think you interpret the problem incorrectly.  GNU Make allows any
program to be used as SHELL, and promises only that the named SHELL
will be called once for each command it runs.  I'd be surprised to
learn that the Cygwin port withdraws from this promise of GNU Make,
which works on all Posix platforms.
