Ah, I see the problem: the native Windows port (which is what I have)
converts all `:' that are not part of drive letter spec to `;' (by
calling convert_vpath_to_windows32), and then Make parses that using
`;' as PATH_SEPARATOR_CHAR, which makes "C:/foo:D:/bar" work. But in
the Cygwin build, convert_vpath_to_windows32 is not called and
PATH_SEPARATOR_CHAR is `:', so this does not work.

I will try to post an experimental patch soon.  Thanks for pointing
out this problem.

Thank you very much, I'm eager to see the patch ;)

Sorry for the long delay.  Please try the patch below:

2007-12-15  Eli Zaretskii  <address@hidden>

        * vpath.c (construct_vpath_list) [HAVE_DOS_PATHS]: Support VPATH
        values that use `:' in drive letters, when PATH_SEPARATOR_CHAR is
        also `:'.

Works for me, thank you very much!
