Why are you trying to use /bin/sh as your shell with Java? Unless you've
somehow built a Cygwin version (did you?), it won't understand Cygwin mounts
paths.Try not setting your shell to /bin/sh and using MAKE_MODE win32. Don't
use cygpath either (I think you used it wrong in the example above since I'm
guessing you wanted a Windows path?).
