test -f //dot

While running configure on llvm I get a hang on:

checking for Graphviz... echo Graphviz
checking for dot...

The configure script has a line starting:
if { test -f "$as_dir/$ac_word$ac_exec_ext" && ...

The problem occurs when $as_dir is /

test -f //dot

...also hangs (at least 15 mins.). I tested it on Linux and another 
cygwin machine, and test returns promptly there.

(I *had* introduced / to the PATH by adding cygwin's install dir to my 
Windows PATH; to ease access to cygwin.bat.)
