[erlang-questions] Both yaws install by cean and on cygwin failing

I fixed the make by following the blog:
http://bloggablea.wordpress.com/2007/04/21/building-yaws-for-windows/

Now, when I do "make install", I get extra "/" in front, like this:
//usr/local/yaws.  I am not sure where this extra forward slash is
coming from.  Anyone knows why you get the extra /?


./configure --prefix=/usr/local/yaws
make
make install

"make install" problem:

set -e ; \
        for d in c_src src man www/shopingcart www/code doc scripts ; do \
            if [ -f $d/Makefile ]; then ( cd $d && make install ) || exit 1 ; fi
 ; \
          done
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/joe/apps/yaws-1.73/c_src'
/usr/bin/install -c -d //usr/local/yaws/lib/yaws/priv/lib
/usr/bin/install: cannot create directory `//usr': No such host or network path
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/joe/apps/yaws-1.73/c_src'
make: *** [install] Error 1

thnx,
joe
