race issue on configure

I am noticing race problems during configure tests, on
both 32 and 64 bit builds.
The effect is a random failing test as conftest.exe can not be access
by the linker.

gcc -o conftest.exe -ggdb -O2 -pipe -Wimplicit-function-declarat
   conftest.c -lslang -lm  >&5
cannot open
  output file conftest.exe: Permission denied

The workaround is to remove "-pipe" before calling configure
from cygport defaults.

         CFLAGS="-ggdb -O2 -Wimplicit-function-declaration"
         CXXFLAGS="-ggdb -O2 "

Anyone seeing the same ?
Otherwise is a new effect from Symantec, I guess.
