Actually Eclipse doesn't lie, it's the error message we get from
Windows. You will get this error if DLL's are missing. Which 'make'
are you trying to use? Is it cygwin and do you have the cygwin bin in
your path? I often use the 'Depends' tool to check the DLL
dependencies of an executable to see of there's something missing.

BTW, I always highly recommend you use Wascana to build for Windows.
It has all this set up for you.
