Building make from source is pretty trivial: only one binary (plus
docs).  You can just run it out of the build directory if you want, no
need to install.

But no huge rush: I'm underwater at work for at least the next few weeks
as well.

I don't; maybe a message to address@hidden would help?  I really don't
follow this at all (I know, lucky, right? :-)) but my vague impression
is that people are moving away from cygwin and towards mingw.

Well, I've been using GNU make heavily since 1988 or 1989 so it's likely
we did have those discussions.  But I took over maintainership from
Roland in 1996 (as best as I recall).
