"Running the Makefile from cmd.exe" is a way more useful term than
"Windows compatibility".

My comments regarding GnuWin32 were targeted towards cmd.exe...

I personally don't see any point in doing so. Where ever you get your
make from should be a great place to get mkdir/rmdir/rm from.

Check out this:

To get anywhere near reproducable results with 'make' one needs to
envision make and the enumerated utilities as a single entitiy to be
provided/installed/used together.

Build tools trying to improve/replace 'make' typically have the
functionality of those utilities built in. But with 'make' they happen
to be separate - neverless they are part of a 'make' environment.

Trying to have 'make' work with some other utilities that happen to
come with Windows is like trying to have ld65 work with another
compiler instead of cc65.

That would be great - thanks in advance :-)
