The Cygwin version of make doesn't know anything about cmd.exe.  Cygwin
emulates a UNIX-like system.  UNIX-like systems don't have cmd.exe.

If you want a version of make which knows about cmd.exe use the MinGW
version.  I really cannot comprehend how to make this simple fact any
clearer so that is the last I'm going to say on the subject.
