No such host or network path

I installed the cygwin under c:\cygwin. 
And a Repository is installed at c:\Repository.

An application generate Makefile automatically:

export REPOSITORY := /C/Repository/packages

then the make always report:

makefile:71: //C/Repository/packages/pkgconf/rules.mak: No such host or
network path

If I change "//C" to "/C", then it works.

But there are so many such makefiles, I can not change them every time by

So what would be the reason for such a problem?

Thanks for help!
