mingw32-gcc and posix paths

I'm in the process of going from gcc3 to gcc4. For one project I need to
build both cygwin and win32 executables so "-mno-cygwin" to "mingw32-gcc"
was an initial hurdle.

However that is now sorted out, but one thing puzzles me. If the mingw32 is
a cygwin cross-compiler why does it not accept paths in the host format
(meaning cygwin, posix)? To me this seems very natural. Maybe  I'm biased,
but I see no other tools do that, expecting the command line to have the
format of the *target*.

mingw32-gcc also produces .d files in its native format by the way.
