As Chris points out, Mingw configure will not try to configure profile
subdir when it's in the winsup tree (ie., configured for x86-cygwin),
and the profile subdirectory won't be created at all. The Makefile in
winsup/mingw checks if a subdirectory exists before trying to run
make there, and it'll simply skip winsup/mingw/profile. I just checked
and it seems to work just fine for me.

However, I'm doing all of this on a Linux machine, so presumably we
have a problem in native builds. If you still have the problem with
2000-01-08 snapshot, please let me know (hopefully with a fix ;-).
