Nice. :) Though what I find a bit unpleasant is using the specific
separator for a single install command, not the particular syntax.

Then why not put it for all install commands? We'll not depend on the
(undocumented AFAIK) behaviour of win~1 mkdir/copy/del to treat slash
as a directory separator in some cases, but not in others.

Yes. What I failed to read is:


which seems to be the only mention that \ can be used for directory
separator. So I assumed that mingw32-make deviates from make.info,
and that may apply to trailing backslashes too.
