Using something like

  ac_executable_forms='${base} ${base}.exe ${base}.com' 

  base=perl eval ac_candidates=\"$ac_executable_forms\"
  for ac_candidate in $ac_candidates; do

is more flexible than

  for ac_exec_ext in '' $ac_executable_extensions; do

I can't think of a platform where it is necessary right now though,
but more flexibility never hurts and it avoids the '' special case
you use.
