It could be kept unresolved in Cygwin's Make as long as it only
supported Posix-style file names, but I don't think it can remain
unsolved in a Cygwin Make that claims to support DOS-style file names.
So I think we need to fix this.

FWIW, I think the MSYS build should also pick up the patch that solves
this, which is why I conditioned it on HAVE_DOS_PATHS, not on CYGWIN.

All the issues that I know of are supposedly solved by the
HAVE_DOS_PATHS patch that is now in the CVS.  If you know about more
issues, please tell what they are.
