This is an installation problem. There are two versions of make.exe: one
that is part of MSYS and depends on msys-1.0.dll, and another that is
included in the MinGW installer .exe or can be installed separately (which
does not depend on msys-1.0.dll). The MSYS documentation explains that the
native Win32 should not be used with MSYS, and the MSYS installer attempts
to rename it to mingw32-make.exe. Problems like yours can occur if you put
non-MSYS executables in the MSYS /bin directory, so if you did then you
should probably remove them and reinstall MSYS.
