make version 3.79.1, VPATH problem(?)

I am a very happy user of the gnu tools. I encountered a problem I hope
you have a solution for.

I have software that is built on Unix  machines and on PCs and use cygwin to 
emulate the Unix environment. I use native compilers, and for the PC this
is the CL compiler from Microsoft's visual C++ 6.0

I mostly use relative pathnames but sometimes absolue pathnames are required.
I use VPATH for this, but my absolute pathname on the pc (c:/myfiles) contains 
VPATH separator ':' . The make locates the file foo.c in the directory 
"/myfiles" and
passes "/myfiles/foo.c" to the CL compiler, which in its turn thinks this an 
option since
it starts with a '/' (microsoft).

Is there a way to tell make to see the ':' not as a VPATH separator for the PC?
Is there another way to solve this problem?
