I have a version of GNU make that I use once in a while on Win32 (all
varieties) that does just fine. It's a bit older (3.74.4) but I've had no
problems with it. I don't remember where I got it, but it wasn't part of
the cygwin toolkit but some separate collection of unix-like command line
I'll send that copy of gmake.exe to anybody that's interested.
