#21 closed defect (wontfix)

cygwin "C:\" file names in automake generated dependencies

Reported by: linderoth Owned by: somebody
Priority: minor Component: component1
Version: Keywords:



I recently upgraded my cygwin tools -- now using gnu make 3.81. On my Windoze machine, automake (1.9) generates dependencies that include files named like: C:/cygwin/home/jtl3/svn-mods/Bonmin/CoinUtils/src/CoinHelperFunctions.hpp

Having the ':' in the file name makes make very unhappy, it says something like "multiple target patterns". The "patch" for me is just to strip out the C:

I did some searching around, and I wasn't able to figure out the "accepted" way for dealing with this. Otherwise, I would have happily provided a patch...
