Yep.  Thanks!  I'm installing the following patch on HEAD and branch-1-7.

2002-12-02  Alexandre Duret-Lutz  <address@hidden>

        * automake.texi (Options): Programs listed in
        AM_INSTALLCHECK_STD_OPTIONS_EXEMPT should have $(EXEEXT) appended.
        * tests/gnits3.test (AM_INSTALLCHECK_STD_OPTIONS_EXEMPT):
        Append $(EXEEXT).
        Reported by Charles Wilson.
