   I took a look at this now and there was a bug in path.native-NT()
causing it not to construct absolute paths without an explicitly
specified drive letter correctly on Windows.

   I committed a patch fixing this and now --build-dir=\aaa\bbb gets
interpreted as expected.

   I still think it should not silently misinterpret invalid paths like
\\\\\aaa\\\\\bbb but that's a separate story for a separate commit. :-)

Commit comment:
Corrected outputting native Windows paths so that it works correctly for
absolute paths without the drive letter being explicitly specified, e.g.
\aaa\bbb or /aaa/bbb.

   Hope this helps.
