Gary, I think you were saying that libtool converts drive:/path to
//drive/path? this is not UNC, but some a bit crazy (because it forbids
one letter machine names, and cause network timeouts if you refer to an
unexisting drive, like //A/ if the floppy is not inserted) cygwin
convention. This convention is now becoming obsolete and is no more
supported in current snapshot, and replaced by /cygdrive/drive/path
(with cygdrive configurable in the registry).
