1) I think that you are misunderstanding the problem.
2) You think that everything is in FAQ ?
Whatever you do, "make" will stuck with javac.

Why can't it be otherwise ? Lack of imagination ? QED ( :-) )
1) I thought that javac, being a product of Sun Microsystem, (and there exist
its counterpart in Unix) would accept unix style path, which I found
the case. It is better to write an application to accept both styles.
we should request Sun to do it, letting them know that in Windows there
are many Unix tool users.
2) Rather than messing around the backslash and slash all over the places,
and make Makefiles and other shell scripts incompatible with the Unix,
(for example, I want to use the same Makefile on both platform - yes,
Sunworkstation on my left side and WindowsNT on my right side),
maybe, bash or some other utility registers applications which requires
windows specific path, and whenever you use unix style path, it
converts to MS-DOS style when the system finally gives the application
