Note that the path mangling comes from MSYS [1], not MinGW, so you should place "MINGW" with "MSYS" in several places. As a side-note, the official spelling is "MinGW", not "MINGW".

-relative_path /a/b/c/  /a/b/           c/

+relative_path /foo/a/b/c/      /foo/a/b/       c/

Wouldn't it have been more straight-forward to just replace "a" with "foo", "b" with "bar" and "c" with "baz" (or whatever)? So that the first line would say

relative_path /foo/bar/baz/     /foo/bar/               baz/

Thanks for the fix!
