Hi guys,
I get the following error here:
cfg.mk:20: *** Recursive variable `PATH' references itself (eventually).  Stop.
while compiling autoconf with latest mingw on xp sp2.
 
my PATH is like this:

It's a bit messy, and I'm sorry for that.
I am not very familiar with makefile and things like, so it's little hard for me to debug it. So thanks for every comment and advice.
