In that case, it's not a good idea to use it indiscriminately in the
MinGW build.  For example, I don't use MSYS to build MinGW ports; I
use a port of zsh, which does return d:/foo/bar Windows-style absolute
file names from its pwd.

If there's no other solution, the script should use the -W switch only
with pwd that supports it.  We need to come up with a way to test for
that support at the beginning of the test suite.
