Quoting "William A. Hoffman" <address@hidden>:

One thing: my original idea was to have a configure option that
enabled the DOS path capabilities.  I note some here are advocating a
configure test which simply sets the HAVE_DOS_PATHS option if Cygwin
is detected, rather than leaving it up to the user.  Is it the case
that people might want to build a Cygwin version of make _WITHOUT_ DOS
path support?

Good question.  So, you are thinking this would be a --have-dos-paths option
to configure?

The appropriate switch is --with-dos-paths and --without-dos-paths. There may be autoconf m4 filters for this already, you'll need to check.
