empty directory globbing in bash/sh for loops

- Subject: empty directory globbing in bash/sh for loops
In the Cygwin bash the following statement
for file in ./SOME_EMPTY_DIR/* ; do do_it_on $file ; done
executes the following once because of how globbing is done.
Unfortunately the gcc 4.0.2 makefiles do use this on possibly empty
directories and break.
Does anybody know how to solve this, please?
I realize it's a hot topic, but I really couldn't find a solution anywhere.
I was actually surprises to see the gcc breaking on something like this
because I've built cross-gcc 4.0.2 under mingw/msys before without any
problems at all.
