Just to clarify, I am not talking about using cygwin make, where they
completely disable using drive letters. I am just talking about using the
standard make 3.82 source and build with cygwin gcc. All of my microsoft
compiled code builds fine when using the resultant make.exe. I am not using
the w32 directory at all, while it seems all other builds require it.
