  make (at least GNU make) executes the "-C aDir" option before
  anything else. So, your command is equivalent to
  > cd ../library/mva
  > make -f MakePkg PKG=mva

  But in ../library/mva there isn't MakePkg.
  So the correct command should be 
  > make -f ../../gnuwin32/MakePkg -C ../library/mva PKG=mva
