It would seem that the following test is the culprit:
configure:4159: checking fifos...
configure:4242: gcc -o conftest.exe -g -O2 conftest.c >&5
configure:4245: $? = 0
configure:4250: $? = 0
After this point, conftest.exe cannot be removed.
Looking around line 4167 of screen's configure should show what exact code
has this behavior. You can then compile it separately and see if you can
reproduce it. After that, it's a matter of debugging.
