As it stands now, make defaults --win32 mode outside of a proper install
of cygwin. You properly identified the line that caused the change in
behavior. The code assumes that if it is running in a properly
configured environment, it should default to UNIX mode, otherwise it
defaults to win32.
If you want to submit a patch to rectify the behavior, I'll certainly
consider it. I'm not sure how it would work, exactly, since just setting
the SHELL to something doesn't guarantee that make should be in UNIX mode.
Workarounds are to set the environment variable MAKE_MODE=unix or to add
the --unix option to your make command line.
