Ah, I haven't been staying readily on-top of updates to htmlconftest, 
but I do have that bit in there except the assumption about the path 
separator got me. Would you be open to me providing a rather large patch 
to add support for win32, with the caveat that it perhaps would be very 
specific to my box? Then we could stay in sync better and there probably 
is some merit to making htmlconftest portable to win32 *wink*
