As a matter of fact we do rewrite *_PROGRAMS, but *after* having set
@result which is the return value of am_install_vars.  Therefore the
file_contents maps %PROGRAM% to what the user has written.

It shouldn't be any problem until someone has the good idea to use
$(EXEEXT) to define *_PROGRAMS...

I'd be happy to clean this, but there is already quite a few patches
in the queue :(  TODO?
