Quoting Eli Zaretskii <address@hidden>:

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.

I can see where this could get sticky if a package has older versions of m4 configuration files. Perhaps make.h should change to check for __CYGWIN__ || __MSYS__ until configure scripts have caught up with the changes?
