William, could you please verify that PATH_SEPARATOR_CHAR is set
correctly in the patched Make that you built?  It should be `:' in the
Cygwin build, and the way this is supposed to happen is because
config.h (produced from by the configure script) should
define PATH_SEPARATOR_CHAR to `:'.  I presume that you still have the
source tree you patched and compiled, so you should be able to look at
config.h there.

If config.h does NOT set PATH_SEPARATOR_CHAR to `:', then make.h will
set it to `;' because HAVE_DOS_PATHS is defined.  If that's what
happens, then I can definitely understand why vpath is not working,
since vpath.c uses PATH_SEPARATOR_CHAR to break the vpath list into
individual directories, and checks each one of them for existence in
the file system.
