Actually, I think in this case "unixify" would mean trying to make
sense out of Windows path on a Unix machine: The target sent us
c:\path\to\dll, and we're trying to find that dll on the host.
So best guess on the host is probably /path/to/dll.  After that,
we should be able to use the root prefix setting, if necessary,
in order to find the file on the host.
