Well, then I think it's a bug in the cross compiler.  Incidentally, I
do have a patch for GCC that fixed the extension conventions, but it
can't be applied because it breaks the build because of
autoconf-related issues.  Catch 22 :-(

I guess we'll have to retain the host checking of Cygwin, Mingw and
OS2 and explicitly set EXEEXT to .exe if host is any of these :-(

Too bad...
