The Windows version of javac does not support paths that BEGIN with a
forward slash. That is the crux of Jin's complaint.

Yes, but have you run the Cygnus version of GNU make on Windows/NT? The
Cygnus version of GNU make is a version that has been modified to run in

version when I run it in UNIX mode.
