It might not work in your environment, but it worked in Charlie's tests.

They now use paths with 'C:\' twice:

I think SRC_PATH, which is also set using $(pwd), needs the same adjustment as DST_PATH.

You're very quick to suggest a revert here, but very reluctant about reverting
commit 31741ae. That's not consistent.
Thus I object to reverting this before the regression caused by 31741ae is fixed.

Also, please be a bit more constructive. Just complaining that it doesn't work
in your setup is not helpful, as I don't have that setup and thus can't investigate
the problem. At the very least I'd need to see the output of 'make V=1'.

Best regards,
