Re: Why are Windows paths broken in make 3.81?

I just had to deal with such a messy system and the new Cygwin make doesn't
work. Even though this collection of makefiles was initially written on a
POSIX system it still got into trouble with DOS paths because some of the
tools it calls to generate makefiles return platform-specific paths. So
this works fine on a POSIX system, worked fine on Win2000 with the old
make, but now I had to understand complicated sed programs to add extra
platform-specific sed transformations to convert paths returned by other
cross-platform tools to something the new make accepts.
Did you think about using 'cygpath' on the result instead of adding extra
platform specific transformations to your complicated sed programs?
