We have already a lot of autodetect stuff in FreeType's configuration
process (for GNU make); it won't be a big deal to add a test for

Since I don't use Windows: Can you sketch out how to detect `cmd.exe'?

Currently, we test for Windows NT by checking the `OS' environment
variable whether it contains `Windows_NT'.

We check for win32 by testing whether COMSPEC is defined and the
output of the `ver' program contains the string `Windows'.
