Does this binary work if you invoke it from the cmd.exe prompt?  But
please make sure your Makefile invokes programs that are on Path, and
try to avoid invoking Cygwin programs as much as possible.  Also, I
would suggest to remove Cygwin's sh.exe from Path, as Make on Windows
always prefers to use a Unix shell if available.

If Make doesn't work even under these circumstances, then something is
broken.  Otherwise, you could be experiencing some incompatibility
between Cygwin and native Windows programs.
