How to use CW 10.6 with external Makefile and have it work?

I have jumped through all the hoops to get CW 10.6 to use my external Makefile, for KL25.  This Make project builds fine when CW is not evolved.


When I do 'build all' this is the result in the console:


mingw32-make[1]: *** [build_begin] Error 1

mingw32-make: *** [all] Error 2


Is it to much to ask for CW to actually tell me what the error might be? :-(

It is not listed under the 'error' tab either.


I expect it is shell related.


The environment variable MAKESHELL is properly set so that BASH is being found, yet CW is not dealing with shell lines.


# Blank line in make output spew:
$(info )


# If there are strange erorrs about 'f not found' this indicates that
# the MS-DOS command shell is being found rather than BASH.  On
# MS-DOS/Windows set the environment variable MAKESHELL to point to
# the directory that contains BASH.

$(info SHELL     = '$(SHELL)')
$(info )


Results in:


SHELL = 'sh.exe'


MAKESHELL = 'J:\Apps\BASH\bin'


I'm not sure if shell lines are not executing or their results go to oblivion.  Either way what CW is doing is broken:


For example:


GCCVERSION := $(shell echo `$(CC) -dumpversion`)

# ifeq "$(GCCVERSION)" "4.7.1"

#    CTUNING += -mstrict-X

# else

#    CTUNING += -morder1 -fno-split-wide-types -fno-inline-small-functions

#    CTUNING += --combine -fwhole-program


# endif

$(info )

$(info Building Target: $(TARGET_DIR)/$(TARGET) with)

$(info $(CC) version: $(GCCVERSION))


$(GCCVERSION) is not being properly filled in when run from CW.


Is there any hope here or is CW a waste of time?
