[mingw32] Re: [RFC] changing gcc default output executable name (a.exe now)

I'd vote just the opposite: make an "a.out" file in both instances, because:
1) that's what
UNIX does, it's expected; 2) that's what UNIX does, it's documented; 3)
typing "a.out"
under WinDo$e will run the file any - we don' need no steekin' suffixes
anymore; and 4) it
doesn't break anything we're trying to port from UNIX anyway..

This is just one more "exactly the same as UNIX but with one subtle
difference" nuisance.
