Thats how i fixed my msvc fate instances now. Using a relative path
for SAMPLES avoids the msys expansion issue.
At the same time, it also fixed the recent FATE issues because of
windows-style pathes not properly escaped, because it just doesn't use
an absolute path anymore in that case.

Only leaves the issue with single-quoted windows path not working,
which seems to be rather annoying for windows users.
