This is probably due to your using a FAT filesystem.  FAT filesystems
store file times with a 2-second granularity, so it's not surprising that
make is confused.  As a workaround, use NTFS.

I don't believe this is O'Caml-specific.  If you want to pursue this
further, we should probably move the discussion to the Cygwin mailing
