A few alternative suggestions:
1) Write your own indirect file handler;
2) I seem to remember splint gets some options from files - hack them;
3) Use the subst command to give you a synonym for your folder;
4) Write a .BAT to populate a directory with the files of interest and 
do splint *.c there.
