1.8.3p1 has changed the defaults for the COPY and INSTALL Makefile
macros on Windows from "cp" and "install" to "copy > nul" for both.
This would be fine (and probably work better), except that a lot of
extensions seem to end up providing paths delimited with a "/" to the
COPY and/or INSTALL command, and "copy" on Windows doesn't handle it
properly. For an example, try building and installing
'win32-semaphore' using 1.8.3p1.

There may also be an issue with switches, such as '-m', provided to
INSTALL, but I haven't researched it extensively.

Thanks,
