The lack of fork just makes it slightly more challenging (DJGPP also has no
fork(), but has a fully functional bash).  But I see your point.

I suppose libtool could include such a transformation (it's easy enough:
something like "sed s,/cygdrive/\(.\)/,\1:/,g" should do).  So please either
submit a patch, or point out the specific places where such a change would
be required.  I'm surprised this doesn't cause problems for configure
scripts as well.
