Have not build MythTV on Windows for a while but started again the last 
few days and finally resolved the pwd issue.

It seems my path environment for my user did include the PATH to pwd, 
but the system PATH did not. Since the latter seems to be used by the 
build script I ported the PATH settings to the system PATH variable 
which fixed my issues. Posting this as it might be off help to future 

Kind regards,
