I think this could probably be fixed by patching autoconf, which knows
for example to look for .exe under cygwin.  I did send them a patch at
one point, but I didn't write a ChangeLog entry for them, so it didn't
get put it, and my wrapper scripts ended up solving pretty much
everything this would have fixed, so I didn't pursue it.
