I know why, instead of dirname, for instance, there are regexp like,
l. 923 of texi2any.pl

  if ($input_file_name =~ /(.*\/)/) {
    $input_directory = $1;

or l. 334, to determine if a path is absolute:
  if ($file =~ /^\//) {

Both will fail if the path separator is \.

Though, since I cannot test on windows, I'd prefer a patch also tested on
unix/linux rather than doing it myself.
