I converted your "answer" to a comment.
It looks like your environment is lacking something and is unable to execute the pod2html script as can be seen by the line
Check that the script is in the place indicated. If it isn't then you'll need to add a package to your Cygwin install that contains the script, see the Cygwin Packages page to search for one containing the required item.
If you do have the file then something else is wrong an you should see if the script can be executed from a Cygwin prompt, and work from there.

Here is what I did to make it work: Edit the file config.nmake and insert the full path for pod2man and pod2html as follows POD2MAN=$(SH) /usr/bin/pod2man
It should generate the proper man and html files. I think the problem is that the path to pod2man and pod2html is not passed to bash when running under nmake. If you try to run bash manually from the command line, it generates a html file with the appropriate size.
If this is indeed a general problem, can someone submit this fix to the wireshark developers?
