RMS doesn't want the term "win" used when referring to Windows.  That's
why the macro was changed to WINDOWS32 in the first place.  Cluck, rail,
or roll your eyes all you like: make is an FSF package.

If you want to autoconfig it that would be great; but part of the
autoconfig will need to define WINDOWS32 in config.h (I would suppose).
I would be happy to see something like:

  AC_DEFINE(WINDOWS32, 1, [Built for a Windows system in 32-bit mode.])

or whatever seems appropriate.

I don't think it will get into this release.  I have a port to OS/2
waiting in the wings as well that won't be making it.
