I think I see now why you said that my posted command would not work.
The problem is that I have not yet fixed emacs to recognize drive letters.
The workaround is to use the /cygdrive/DRIVELETTER syntax.

So try something like this:

ant whatever 2>&1 | sed 's=\\=/=g;s=\([a-zA-Z]\):/=/cygdrive/\1/=g;s/\r//g'


1. changes \ to /
2. changes X:/ to /cygdrive/X/
3. removes carriage returns

I saw you used some GNU sed feature for 3, so correct it if I got it wrong.
I don't think it's portable to other platforms so I never use it.
