Seems like you are right: COPY doesn't understand forward slashes. I
wonder how did that work for someone?

You need to rename them to their 8+3 short names.
There's a way to do that automatically, but it requires to change the
setting of the NameNumericTail feature via the Registry, see section
22.18 of the DJGPP FAQ list for details.
But it might be worthwhile to simply try to compile the sources on
Windows. Perhaps the amount of problems will be small, and you will; be
able to figure them out and correct them one by one. Just don't expect
everything to go smoothly and make sure you understand and investigate
any warning/error messages you see.
