I looked at the bug tracking list on savannah and didn't see any open
bugs relating to this issue. I just tried searching email@example.com
but didn't find anything relevant. There were a lot of (old) posts
about an unrelated echo suppression bug in define/endef sequences in
3.79 which made it difficult to be sure.
I didn't send the message to bug-make because a) the identical
makefile behaves as expected on our local GNU/Linux box (with make
3.80) and b) I had the vague impression that cygwin make was modified
enough that Paul Smith (make maintainer) would just bounce it back
I'll post the original bug report to make-w32 and see what they say.
