You should be happy. "Nothing to be done for 'all' " means that
vclient is ready (it already exists).
Your makefile contains:
#$(CLIENT): $(patsubst %.cpp,%.o, $(VCLIENT_SOURCES)) $(patsubst
# $(CXX) $^ $(CLIENT_LIBS) -o $@
You just commented out the recipe which would have told make how to
create $(CLIENT) a.k.a. vclient.
If you delete vclient and run make, you'll get the following error:
make: *** No rule to make target `vclient', needed by `all'. Stop.
The # character acts as a comment for make. You should try
uncommenting these two lines and running make again.
This is a problem with your makefile, not the make. It is also not a
Cygwin problem. You would get the same result on Linux with the
commented out lines.
If you want to see what make is "thinking", use the -d option.
