This can't be right.  The profile directory should be handled by mingw's
configure.  The "top level" configure is only supposed to handle
directories immediately below it.

This configure is straight from Mumit.  He did not choose to configure
in the profile directory when the target was "*cygwin*".  Take a look at
the mingw/configure.in file.

These are supposed to be handled already.  It obviously isn't required
all the time or we wouldn't be able to make snapshots.

I can see that this could be required, but you shouldn't modify
configure scripts.  They're autogenerated from configure.in.
It's possible that Mumit has fixed this already.

I'll weed out the configure, regexp, and smallprint patches and
apply what's left.
