It looks like make is not recognizing VPATH correctly.
I'm using make-3.80-1.
This is unlikely. Gcc is known to build on cygwin. I do it all the time
and it has no problem for me. Perhaps something else is underlying.
I've also built GCC on Cygwin a number of times without problem
until I updated Cygwin, which installed make-3.81. The changes in
make-3.81 cause problems with another makefile which uses DOS paths
containing variables (%name), so I uninstalled make-3.81 and installed
make-3.80 binaries from mozilla.org.
I reinstalled make-3.81. The problem is gone.
I don't have the option of re-writing the makefiles which use
DOS paths to make them compatible with make-3.81.
Is there a working version of make-3.80 available? Is there
any option which will make make-3.81 treat DOS variables the
same as in make-3.80?
