Setting SHELL from the command line is tricky in the Windows port of
Make.  I don't remember the details, but it's possible you need to say
SHELL=cmd.exe, with the explicit .exe extension.  Removing sh.exe from
PATH (or renaming it) is much easier and more reliable.

Btw, Dany, are you perhaps using an MSYS port of Make?  If so, there's
another source of similar problems.  Please use the MinGW port
instead (you can compile it yourself from sources, if you want: it
boils down to running a single batch file).
