Note that -L passes flags (options) but not necessarily arguments 
or paths.  For example, I use "dmd -L/STACK:268435456" by default 
along with other options to increase the default stack size to 
256Mb.  The "/STACK:268435456" part is an OPTLINK switch, not a 
path.  Here is the list of OPTLINK switches:

Clearly, the forward slash (/) is reserved for switches, so the 
program will have trouble parsing paths with forward slashes.
