When using eclipse with CDT plugin and the "Cygwin GCC toolchain" on a MS
Windows workstation, the problem occurs.
CDT does not understand POSIX pathes in the include directories list.
"g++ -M" commands generates dependencies makefiles according to the include
path given by CDT.
Finally, make fails with "multiple target patterns" error.

eclipse could understand cygwin like pathes, but I agree with Benoit to
consider this as a bug of make Windows port. It should support as well as
possible Windows path format.

Thanks for your help Christopher.
