The heuristics it has is something along the lines of:
"do we have mingw32-make.exe in PATH, but not sh.exe"? [1]

The sh.exe test is to avoid having a MSYS or Cygwin in PATH, for which
you should instead use the corresponding "MSYS Makefiles" or
"Unix Makefiles" generators.

[1] It might be accepting an acceptable make.exe too, don't remember.
