You need to look into the Makefile and find its setting of the SHELL

The immediate problem is that the Makefile caused the Make utility to
invoke the following command:

  C:/ProgramData/Oracle/Java/javapath/ -c "if not exist ..\..\lib\gcc_dll mkdir ..\..\lib\gcc_dll"

to which Windows rightfully objected, because
C:/ProgramData/Oracle/Java/javapath/ is a directory and cannot be
invoked as a program.  Judging by the command, the intent was to
invoke the cmd.exe Windows shell here, and do it with the /c switch,
not -c switch.  So looking into the Makefile for related commands and
variables will most probably find the culprit.

I cannot say anything more specific, sorry, because I don't have the
Makefile and the source tree you are using.  If the above doesn't help
you figure out the problem, maybe asking on the wxWidgets forum will
