I doubt it.  The normal unix make uses no such variable.  This one is
probably from mingw (which I know little about, so I won't speculate

Try to print the environment from the inside of the makefile (by putting a
-env in the default rule).  That may give some clues.

Also, make sure you're running the correct (cygwin) make ('which make'
should do it).  Make sure you're using '$(MAKE)' to invoke make
recursively, rather than 'make', as the path may be set incorrectly.  I
would put both '-which make' and '-echo $(MAKE)' in the default rule, just
to verify that.
