Make problem

I'm running bash 2.06 on Windows98.

I'm trying to learn how to use make in this environment.

Every time make tries to execute a command, it says:
/c: /c: No such file or directory

It gives this same message regardless of the command.

For example, for the following small makefile:

SHELL = bash
	echo hello

The output is:

"C:/cygnus/cygwin-b20/H-i586-cygwin32/bin/bash.exe"-2.02$ make
echo hello
/c: /c: No such file or directory
make: *** [ProjectX] Error 127

I can run the command "echo hello" at the bash prompt, and it runs 
correctly. In general, I can run commands in the shell, and never 
have any problems, nor do I ever see this "/c: /c:" thing.

I've tried the --win32 switch, and it doesn't make any difference.
