certainly don't have cywgin itself installed to another drive, but
building on another volume isn't a general problem. On the
release-build machine I also had to add another drive and now build in

It is a local drive, not a network volume (i use a network share (nfs
mounted share to drive letter N) to store the external tarballs
without issue.

Some jenkins slaves have a unusual setup where an additional drive is
mapped to a path and not a different drive letter, so that would work
as well.
