Hi guys,

I wasted many hours just to find out that make 3.81 does not support MS-DOS path names. As cygwin is supposed to be the unix-like environment for Windows, from a dumb users perspective, this is not the expected behavior.

In other words it means the make for Windows lacks support for Windows path names. 

There are no workarounds if you are using Eclipse CDT on Windows, because it generates the makefiles.

Can you revert to make 3.80 or publish a working 3.82?
