I just found this util in cygwin's distribution to convert pathnames.

$ cygpath
Usage: cygpath [-p|--path] (-u|--unix)|(-w|--windows [-s|--short-name]) filename

  -a|--absolute         output absolute path
  -c|--close handle     close handle (for use in captured process)
  -f|--file file        read file for path information
  -u|--unix             print Unix form of filename
  -w|--windows          print Windows form of filename
  -s|--short-name       print Windows short form of filename
  -W|--windir           print `Windows' directory
  -S|--sysdir           print `system' directory
  -p|--path             filename argument is a path
  -i|--ignore           ignore missing argument

$ cygpath -w /cygdrive/u/lyongu
u:\lyongu

I think this can be used when generating the makefile. Slashes are also
converted to backslashes, so maybe we should quote the result.
