Okay, I've experimented a bit and it fails for me, too.  No idea what
the best solution would be.  I'd feel a bit uneasy about changing the
shell to bash (even though the Makefile in Emacs does this as well)
because I'm not sure it would be available everywhere, especially on
Windows systems.  Also, the make manual suggests to use /bin/sh, see
