'make' stumbles over file names with a drive spec:

  regex.o regex.o:  \
  c:/sds/dev/current/build-mingw-1/gllib/stdint.h \

It seems you are mixing w32 path-aware tools (GCC) with tools not w32
path-aware (make).  Typically, the solution is to use matching sets of
programs, either by using mingw32-make, or using MinGW/MSYS without
Cygwin tools, or using Cygwin fully.  My MSYS make has no problem with
these file names.

If you had given a reference to the discussion where this occurred
initially (I know that I've skimmed it before, but as I'm still catching
up with mail backlog I am not eager to search for it), I might've even
been able to say what exactly your issue is, and whether it is an
Automake one.  ;-)
