Thanks, the fix has been applied.

I had reworked the snippet in the meanwhile.  It should be ok now.

No, we cannot do that.  We precisely issue this line when we have not
seen that AC_EXEEXT was used, so we cannot depend EXEEXT.  We need to
understand why it failed in pr19.  I suppose you are not running Unix

What you observe is that the test itself is not ready to be run under
Cygwin, i.e., I guess its doesn't include AC_EXEEXT.
That's the problem to fix.

I leave this to Tom.
