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?
