I configured latest source code of Firefox following but on building
the source using ./mach build while in Cygwin terminal it says:

$ ./mach build
Error running mach:


The error occurred in code that was called by the mach command. This is
a bug in the called code itself or in the way that mach is calling it.

You should consider filing a bug for this issue.

If filing a bug, please include the full output of mach, including this

The details of the failure are as follows:

Exception: Could not find a suitable make implementation.

line 390, in build
    silent=not verbose)
  File "/cygdrive/c/mozilla-central/python/mozbuild/mozbuild/", line
483, in _run_make
    args = self._make_path()
  File "/cygdrive/c/mozilla-central/python/mozbuild/mozbuild/", line
602, in _make_path
    raise Exception('Could not find a suitable make implementation.')

How to go around it? Any help/guidance?
