No, it won't ;)

It calls make but changes the PATH before doing that to exclude anything
except the FPC dir (or Lazarus, FPC bin dir later on) and a
bootstrap/binutils dir where you can store or let fpcup download a
bootstrap compiler, make.exe etc.

Tested with a Delphi6 install which puts Delphi make in the path.
