The change was intentional:
The ways to "fix" this are:
1) mount -x x:/wheerever/blah/sh.exe /bin/sh
2) cp x:/whereever/blah/sh.exe /bin/sh
3) make SHELL=/cygdrive/x/whereever/blah/sh.exe
4) (echo "SHELL=/cygdrive/x/whereever/blah/sh.exe"; cat Makefile) > m
mv m Makefile
5) Grab the source for make and change it to do whatever you want.
