if I have this (generated) makefile:

==============
DIR=c:/a/b/c/d

foo: $(DIR)/foo
	copy $(DIR)/foo foo
==============

make barfs (multiple target patterns) because it cannot handle 2 colons on one 
line.
the solution is to use an msys path /c/a/b/c/d instead if the windows path 
c:/a/b/c/d
alas, there is no way to do the conversion without the ad hoc sed command 
(which is very easy to get wrong).
