To save further hassle, rpvm is not going to build on Windows unless you have PVM installed and working on Windows.

If that is the case, this looks like the use of the wrong make, with the wrong shell (that message is coming from a Windows shell, not sh.exe). Do see the warnings in README.packages about the MinGW make.
