Flawed expectation.  mingw32-make.exe is a pure native Windows tool,
provided for the convenience of users who, for whatever (misguided)
reason, don't want to use MSYS.  No native MinGW tools knows about the
MSYS file system mapping, so, while most will run from MSYS, they cannot
take advantage of MSYS path names.  Where an MSYS specific alternative
is provided, you should always use it, (unless the MinGW version
supports some feature which you need, and the MSYS version doesn't;
in this case you need to take care that MSYS features are properly
converted, when you invoke the native tool).
