Description of Problem:
I'm new in eCos Config.
When I make library I have a problem with the path of the directories: the 
program builds the makefiles in this way (with a double slash):

export REPOSITORY := //C/eCos/eCos/packages
export PREFIX := //C/eCos/eCos/cross_arm_install

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Additional Information:

This is the output that come out when I build library:
*** Process 1024 created "make -j1"
make -r -C hal/arm/arch/v1_3_1 headers
make[1]: Entering directory 
makefile:91: //C/eCos/eCos/packages/pkgconf/rules.mak: No such host or 
network path
make[1]: stat://C/eCos/eCos/packages/pkgconf/rules.mak: No such host or 
network path
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 
`//C/eCos/eCos/packages/pkgconf/rules.mak'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory 
make: *** [headers] Error 2

*** Process 1024 terminated (rc=2)
*** Killing process 1024 (TerminateProcess)

I make a mistake, because the OS/Version it isn't Linux but is the packet 
"eCos Configuration Tool" under Windows.

Thank's a lot, Giuseppe Di Bona

//c syntax is not supported by cygwin anymore. eCos config tool should be fixed 
to use /cygdrive/c or /c syntax instead.
The following section is extracted from the Cygwin's FAQ:

Why doesn't //c (for C:) work anymore?
(Similarly for any drive letter, e.g. //z for Z:) 

This "feature" has long been deprecated, and no longer works at all in the 
latest release. As of release 1.3.3, //c now means the network share c. 

For a detailed discussion of why this change was made, and how deal with it 
now, refer to http://sources.redhat.com/ml/cygwin/2001-09/msg00014.html.
