F:\emacs\nt>mingw32-make -f -
        echo $(CURDIR)
echo F:/emacs/nt

Maybe this is a new misfeature.
I was using "configure --prefix F:\emacs-bin", now I change it into "configure 
--prefix F:/emacs-bin" and everything is OK.
Strange, I have used the original command for several mounths on another 
I'll try to compile emacs using a stable version of mingw later to confirm if 
it is a misfeature.
Thanks for your help.
