emerge problem with openssl - mixing forward and back slashes

I'm working on branch kde-4.13, and am stuck on openssl.  (1.0.1g). It's 
failing with:

\dev-utils\bin/perl.exe x86cpuid.pl coff -I. -I.. -I../include 
-DWIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN -fomit-frame-pointer -O3 -march=i486 -Wall 
/usr/bin/sh: dev-utilsbin/perl.exe: No such file or directory

Near the beginning (line72?) of the Makefile from openssl-1.0.0d, there 
is the line "PERL= \dev-utils\bin/perl.exe" and it seems the backslashes 
are being used to quote the following character instead of being swapped 
for forward slashes, leading to perl not being found.

I've tried creating a patch to switch the back to forward slashes, but I 
haven't  been able to get the correct syntax.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
