/ works as a path separator in windows filesystem calls fairly ok.
So writing targets and sources that way in gnu make lines is good.

Command line tools from windows think / introduces a switch,
so they need a \. I recall using $(subst  /,\,$@), or maybe
$(subst /,\\,$@) to do that sort of thing when $@ has / and
the command I'm using it in needs \.

You may find that getting the cygwin tools (which give you rm on 
windows), or someting similar, helps a lot with getting a makefile 
the same on windows and unix.
