GNU Make 4.0

Are there any known issues with using GNU Make 4.0 to build OpenJDK8?

I upgraded CygWin in response to paranoia over Bash/Shellshock.  Along the way I got Make 4.0.  The subsequent build failed very early with:
  BuildLangtools.gmk:204: *** missing separator.  Stop.

I rolled the make.exe (and nothing else) back to 3.82.90 and everything worked correctly.

My source is a modified version of JDK8, that's not exactly up to date.
