RE: EGCS 1.0.2: weird include paths with gcc -b, specs, etc

OK folks, now I'm really confused.

But look at this transcript:

BASH.EXE-2.01$ /bin/cpp -v -iprefix
/usr/H-i386-cygwin32/lib/gcc-lib/egcs-2.90.27 glob.c /dev/null
GNU CPP version 2.7-B19 (80386, BSD syntax)
#include "..." search starts here:
#include <...> search starts here:
End of search list.

So the default 2.7-B19 cpp also uses the prefix-relative paths when
-iprefix is used, but prepends them to the C_INCLUDE_PATH. If I still had
gcc-2.7-B19 to hand, I could verify that as I guess it doesn't actually pass
-iprefix to cpp, whereas gcc-2.9 does but ignores C_INCLUDE_PATH.

In any case, I would have expected the search path to start with
C_INCLUDE_PATH followed by compiler version defaults (relative to
GCC_EXEC_PREFIX), followed by global defaults (/usr/include).

And here's a strange 'feature'. With COMPILER_PATH=/usr/bin, where /usr is
mounted on c:\programf\gnu, 


gcc-2.90.27 adds the following options to cpp:

-isystem c\include -isystem \programf\gnu\include

Apparently it sees the : from the DOS filename and parses it as a separator.
