Search the archives for this message. It is a symptom of some problem with your build environment, I can't remember exactly what.

Good catch, however, I can't find any information that helps me solve the problem (I googled it). It seems to be a problem when running carbon emacs (I'm not) or when trying to compile native windows emacs with cygwin's make (I'm not, I'm using mingw-make).
Yes, it was the latter I was remembering. Cygwin make passes Cygwin paths to Emacs, causing problems finding files. The same problem could happen with MSYS, as that also uses munged paths to emulate a unix-like filesystem.
Its possible that a fix for this problem was lost in the unicode merge.

Maybe the people reporting build success under Windows have a "real" mingw installation. I'm using cygwin all the way except I'm using mingw's make and passing --mno-cygwin to cygwin's gcc, I've been building this way for some years.
