You mean in $abspath or everywhere?  We were talking about the former;
I'm not sure the latter is even practical.

Anyway, please tell why you think so.  If it's a good reason, it could
simplify the code of abspath quite a bit.

Also, if Make considers d:foo invalid, what should it do if it does
meet it?  That is, what are the practical expression of rejecting such
file names?

I asked about what it did on OS/2.  I know that MS-Windows doesn't
have it.
