Follow-up Comment #5, bug #39825 (project make):

I can explain why sh.exe makes the difference.  GNU Make on Windows always
prefers a Unixy shell if it can find it.  If it cannot find it, it uses

Also, Make does not invoke the shell if there are no shell features, such as
quoting and redirection, on the command line it needs to invoke.  That is why
objdump worked correctly for you without redirection, even when sh.exe was on

The conclusion is that your sh.exe did something wrong with redirection, I
don't know why.  (In general, the number of non-buggy ports of Unixy shells to
Windows is very small.)
