As I wrote in my first message[*], I unfortunately can't avoid using
Windows paths because the original path comes from "g++ -print-search-dirs"
output of a MinGW compiler. This explains its format and also the trailing
slash that I can't easily remove neither because the path is processed by
libtool. And while in the future I might try switching to Cygwin MinGW
cross-compiler, this can't be done right now so I'd really like to find
some way of making Windows paths with "..//" in them work with Cygwin.
