Thanks for the report.  The `compile' script comes from Automake.
There, this bug has already been fixed in

  commit d7fb4311ce271bf84fb44553b435036356720e5b

      Fix w32 path handling in the `compile' script.
      * lib/compile: Handle colons and backslashes in win32 paths.
      * tests/compile2.test: New test.
      * tests/Makefile.am: Update.
      Report and initial patch by Peter Rosin.

and as such is fixed in recently released Automake 1.11.

Please report back if there are still problems with that newer script.
