autoconf: ./configure fails on cygwin for crosstool-ng-1.24.0

Hello Paul,
hello Allan,

thanks to your input I was sure that the problem had to be found in my 
specific configuration and so I looked around and found it:
I had installed cygwin into the windows program folder and symlinked the 
folder to C:\cygwin64. This seems to have caused problems, because 
deleting the symlink and moving the folder to C:\cygwin64 directly 
resolved the issue. Now ./configure runs until it fails to find libtool, 
which I consider a success.

I can provide the /bin/bash -x ./configure log file upon request.

Thank you!
