installing on Cygwin

I tried installing on cygwin. After successfully configuring make, I get the following error:

Riccardo address@hidden /home/multix/modules/core/make
$ make install
make: *** /home/Riccardo: Is a directory.  Stop.

I configured with the following options

  $ ./configure --with-layout=gnustep --prefix=/

The windows user name uses the name+surname apparently. I built in a directory without spaces an install into /, however probably the script is trying to create /home/Riccardo Mottola without proper quoting or escaping.

I don't believe this is a specific cygwin problem, it is just that under windows usernames with spaces are more common.

Any ideas?
