Should it be recognized? I mean, I had no idea that Windows path names are
usable under Cygwin. It we need to support windows syntax, the fix should be
trivial. Can you please add

os = NT ;

after line 26 in path.jam (after closing brace) and try again? If it works,
I'll make the fix.

Ok, we'd need to tweak the test system a little before resolving this one.

Thanks for the testcase. No wonder, it works on Linux/gcc but it appears RSP
stuff is currently at odds with the magic that moves search-lib-target
instances from the list of sources to command line switches. I'm about to
look into it as soon as possible.
