However, if you can suggest changes that solve the problem using
cygpath, perhaps we could install it.  Please keep in mind that
whatever machinery you produce, it should be optional, since the
versions of Make and Bash listed in nt/INSTALL evidently don't need
any changes, and we want to continue supporting them.

What version of GNU Make are you using, btw?  And what version of the 
Cygwin DLL?
