Steps to reproduce:

1) unpack archive:   tar -xf make-4.2.1.tar.gz
2) run dos prompt:   cmd.exe
3) setup compiler:   "c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat" x86_amd64
4) go to sources:    cd make-4.2.1
5) do compile:       build_w32.bat --without-guile
6) create script:    echo|set /p="1" > script.cmd
7) create makefile:  echo all:;script.cmd > bug.mk
8) execute makefile: WinRel\gnumake.exe -f bug.mk

make hangs with output:

gnumake: *** Error -1
.  Stop.
gnumake: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

Best Regards,
Michael M. Builov.
