Apparently you have set "MAKE_MODE=win32" or are specifying make --win32.
C:/localWIN/ARM251/arm/bin/armcc is not a path that 4NT recognizes, so
it tries to run as much as it does recognize which is c:.  If you change
the / to \, 4NT may have more luck.

Not surprising.  4NT finds the command in the PATH in this case.

I can't duplicate this.  Do you have a small makefile and associated
programs that duplicates this behavior?  If you provide the makefile,
one or two test files and the exact layout of your directories, I'll
look into this.

Also, please send the output of 'cygcheck -r -s -v'.  Send this all
to the cygwin mailng list, not to me personally.
