It's not doing it. scenedetect.lavfi contains the following for me when using SAMPLES=/ffmpeg/samples
This aside, with and without this patch the only way i was able to make it accept the samples path and run without
failing was by giving it a relative instead of an absolute path (for example SAMPLES=../samples).
I remember having some issues compiling GCC when running the configure script using absolute paths in the past, so
i suppose it's a msys bug.
Personally, I'd say we should add a section to the fate documentation recommending msys users to use relative paths
for SAMPLES and not bloat the build system to work around a problem that should be fixed by the msys project.
