    I had the same issue, the author has updated the post as you have seen to include the use of GitBash. You will need to update your source to get the new ‘hack’ directory content used in the instructions he outlines as per below:

    git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/docker/docker.git  /c/gopath/src/github.com/docker/docker
    cd /c/gopath/src/github.com/docker/docker
    export GOPATH=/c/gopath:/c/gopath/src/github.com/docker/docker/vendor
    chmod +x hack/make/.go-autogen && hack/make/.go-autogen
    cd docker
    go build

    Do you have GitBash installed? All of the instructions he provides need to be run in a GitBash window not the Windows Command window now.

    I have built it successfully, so if you need any more help I may be of use.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
