You could use 'cygpath', or just rewrite it yourself:
But why not just use Cygwin's own g++? If you've installed it
(using 'setup.exe), then it's already on $PATH. And even if
you haven't installed it, you might accidentally use a library
provided with Cygwin that would clash with your other compiler.
Besides, a non-Cygwin compiler won't understand Cygwin paths.
