... but it would be better if this override were done by assigning
EXEEXT on the configure line, not by assigning ac_cv_exeext.

Of course I'm against any change to this fragile code before the
release, but I think that the current hack should not be documented.

Thus I propose to remove a tiny fraction of Ralf's work, see the
attached patch.

(I apologize that I haven't noticed it earlier.)
