That's not very reasonable.
Other changes also broke things that worked before.
For example before commit 94c20de one could build ffmpeg with x265 version
X265_BUILD 17, and afterwards it requires at least X265_BUILD 57.

That's also a regression, but the workaround is to use a newer x265 version.

The patch to use relative for DST_PATH should make FATE green again, as
no MSVC FATE client I saw builds across drives.

If it's really necessary to continue supporting this fringe use case, one
could make configure create a link to the destination folder.
Unless links also don't work across drives.

Best regards,
