Yes.  It's apparently a problem with your makefiles.  Looks like you're going
to need to figure out a way to fix the makefiles or tweak your application 
that generates the makefile to remove first '/' in the definition of 
REPOSITORY.  Or just set REPOSITORY to exclude the first '/' before you 
run the makefile.  

Unless I'm missing something, this does seem a bit off-topic.  Is this really
specifically a problem with Cygwin?
