I've discovered something which is only a problem when doing a
CC='gcc -mno-cygwin' compile - namely, that the new wrapper executables do
execv("/bin/bash",...), which quite obviously, msvcrt doesn't understand.

Now, I don't think that many people do weird cross-compile tricks, and this
issue probably should not block a new Cygwin release of libtool, but I just
wanted to raise the issue. I can't think of any good solution to it, either.
