However if the absolute path is Windows-style, something very weird happens:

$ C:/cygwin/usr/local/bin/make
echo /tmp/mk/3/C:/cygwin/usr/local/bin/make
/tmp/mk/3/C:/cygwin/usr/local/bin/make foo
make: /tmp/mk/3/C:/cygwin/usr/local/bin/make: Command not found
make: *** [all] Error 127

where "/tmp/mk/3" is the current working directory.

Thank you for your report.  I will try in a few days to find where
this problem happens.  If you could step through the relevant code
with a debugger and tell what you see, it will help (I don't have
Cygwin installed, so cannot do this myself).

FWIW, you're barking at a long standing Cygwin issue. The mix of POSIX and Win32 paths in the Makefile will cause issues. Do you have a sample Makefile that gives this?

I'm not sure to understand your question... If you're wondering where does all
this come from, check out this thread from ML-Libtool:
