This is an interesting thought! I see that many tools from mingw(32|64)/bin accept both path styles, and about 90% of my build system uses pure Unix style. This is the first time I encounter a problem. Its at least interesting that cmake seems slightly inconsistent here: it accepts Unix style for CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH when using find_xxx(), but no Unix style for detecting package configuration files. I see now that the problem is more likely on my side. But on the other hand, it would be cool if cmake could consistently accept Unix style on MSYS2/MinGW platforms. Would it be worthwhile to make this a cmake issue?
