I found two distutils error on windows.

1. If the implementation of ensure_relative is correct, test should be
fixed like attached patch.

2. I got tar error. This happens because tar command I'm using cannot
recognize path with drive letter. For example, "tar -cf r:/foo ." fails
with error. I'm using

..tar: Cannot open
c:\docume~1\whiter~1\locals~1\temp\tmprd9lcc\archive.tar: Fun
ction not implemented
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
