Makefile command interpreter

- Subject: Makefile command interpreter
I have a few makefiles which are written to run with the cmd.exe command
interpreter, which won't work with cygwin's make (which uses /bin/sh).
Setting export SHELL=cmd.exe
calls cmd.exe alright, but then sits there forever waiting for input.
Is it at all possible to use cmd.exe with a make which uses cygwin1.dll?
There's a mingw32 GNU make, but with that I can't set PATH from the
Makefile (it shows up in the environment, but added paths behave as if
absent - in a sub-make anyway).
My cygwin is the current stable, with GNU make 3.81. On XP.
Thanks for any tips,
