I'm guessing that the difference in behavior between Windows and Posix
platforms is because this Makefile uses backslashes on Windows.  That
causes Make to hash the entire filename with the leading directories,
and they then compare not equal with just the file name (without the
leading directories).  Using forward slashes on Windows as well will
make the behavior on GNU/Linux and Windows the same.
