Through these two commits to config.sub;a=commitdiff;h=91f6a7f616b161c25ba2001861a40e662e18c4ad;a=commitdiff;h=28ea239c53a2d5d8800c472bc2452eaa16e37af2
the host_os values windows* (and in particular windows*-msvc*)
were introduced, to denote native Windows environments.

The commit message makes it sound like LLVM and Crablang communities will
use the windows* value, whereas GNU will continue to use mingw*. But I think
it's only a matter of time until people start to pass the option
to configure scripts. We should be prepared for that.

This patch does the necessary things on the Autoconf side, by accepting a
host_os of the form windows* anywhere where mingw* is accepted.

It's the same patch that I already posted in
no changes are needed after the second config.git commit mentioned above.
