You use cygpath to generate names to pass to your broken compiler. (Yes,
broken - Win32, and most tools running on it like VC++, are perfectly
happy with "/" as path separators).
I.e. instead of just doing
$(BROKENCOMPILER) -c $? -o $*.o # or whatever
$(BROKENCOMPILER) -c `cygpath -w $?` -o `cygpath -w $*`.o
(Those are back-quotes, by the way).
