I have build make from cvs head[1], test[2] as excepted:

C:\var\pool\tmp>mingw32-make.exe all

C:\var\pool\tmp>gmake_gcc45.exe all
gmake_gcc45.exe: *** No rule to make target `test5_undefined', needed by `test4_command'.  Stop.

C:\var\pool\tmp>gmake_vc2010.exe all
gmake_vc2010.exe: *** No rule to make target `test5_undefined', needed by `test4_command'.  Stop.

Build with gcc need some trick, since the latest gcc for windows have inttypes.h/stdint.h added.

That should work. The program won't contain exactly the same object
code as one provided at mingw.org, which would be built with gcc.
But it should have the same behavior.

As far as I know, the current 'mingw32-make' is built directly from
the GNU sources, perhaps with a few of the GNU patches, but without
any MinGW-specific customizations.
