And presumably, as Brian and I both guessed, (he beat me to posting a 
reply, so I didn't bother to just repeat what he said), you *did* put 
mingw32-make in the MSYS /bin directory.  It is well known that this 
doesn't work; it even warns you not to do it, in the README file that 
comes with MSYS-1.0.10, and which you were invited to read when you 
completed the MSYS installation.

However, this does not mean that you cannot use mingw32-make with MSYS 
prior to 1.0.11.  Move mingw32-make.exe to either /usr/local/bin, 
(you may need to mkdir that first), or to /mingw/bin, (you did keep 
your MinGW and MSYS installations in separate root paths, didn't 
you?), and it should work correctly.
