You didn't intend for this line to be in the commit message, right?

Affirmative, Sir! ;-)

I think this may have been the 3rd time someone submitted this. (And,
this goes way back...) :(

The reason I think it was added this way originally is that someone
was using CYGWIN on Windows. That has also been the hangup for not
fixing it in the past. Concern about what it *might* break.

I was under impression that forward slash (/) accepted as file separator in ms windows world even by cygwin.

Anyway, I think we should fix this, because I think it also causes
many error messages during the build. (But the command is set to not
break the build on error.)
