The Windows version of Sun's javac does support paths that begin with
a forward slash. Although, it will only interpret the path relative to
the current drive letter.

It certainly will not use Cygwin's mount table -- maybe this is the
crux of Jin's problem.

I have from b17 to b20.1 (and soon on 1.1.2), but only in UNIX mode.
Due to desiring tolerance of \r\n in makefiles, I decided to upgrade
from Cygwin make 3.77 to GNU make 3.79. It built OOTB without any
fuss. And since I'm only interested in UNIX mode, I didn't notice any
issues (ie, lack of the Windows mode).
Since Chris was nice enough to release Cygwin make 3.79, I will be
switching back to the make included with the Net distribution as soon
as it is convenient.
