I have been using this solution for several months, and it works fine. If
you are doing serious development with Jigsaw on win32, and want to build
a VPATH-happy set of makefiles, you need to do more work with the
makefiles, for instance, in file.make:

# This is a truly ugly hack needed to get javac to work on Win32.
# It will not accept forward-slash separated pathnames that make wants
# to spit out...
.java.class:
        javac -d $(OUTDIR) -O `echo $< | tr / \\\\\\\\`

It looks like VPATH is accounted for in the makefiles, but I am not sure
of how you get it to work smoothly on any platform.. I had to add more
targets to the makefile and have it walk the 'build' tree to get a working
only-rebuild-changed-files make going.
