  Then you've typed something wrong.  Cygwin make has no problem with that
format.  I use it all the time successfully.

  Most likely something's wrong in your makefile.  Are you using a hardcoded
VPATH that makes it work on your C drive but not any other?  Can you strip
down your makefile to a minimal test case that demonstrates the problem
using just a single .c file and %.d:%.c rule?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
