I thought that the option --win32 that is supported by Cygwin helps,
but it doesn't.  In addition the Emacs Makefiles don't work in that
mode, they somehow depend on --unix (the opposite option).  If the
Emacs Makefiles would work in --win32 mode, that mode could probably
be changed to use a Windows style path for CURDIR, I would think that
using Cygwin paths in --win32 mode is a bug. 

At the moment that option seems like more work than I would want to

I'll see what I can do.
