Sweet jesus.

From the MSYS2 PSA about path translation mishaps: :

./configure --root=/

the mishap is: The value of root (/) is emitted to a text file via echo (which is an msys2 program and hence not mangled) and also to a Makefile (through autotools) which passes it to a native program, which reads the text file replacing each instance of / with "some-other-path"

afk, eyes bleeding.
