Actually, it does.  Your patch introduces an unnecessary pipe to cat on non-
Interix, so you've added to the number of fork()s that must be performed, and 
would thus slow down ./configure for everyone.  Not to mention that your patch 
hard-codes knowledge of the platform name, which is a no-no in the autoconf 
philosophy (test features, not platform names).
