I thought as much.

I found GCC_NO_EXECUTABLES, which turned me to google, which turned me
on to AC_NO_EXECUTABLES.  I lined both up side by side, and it appears
that as of autoconf 2.61, AC_NO_EXECUTABLES appears to be pretty
complete and less messy (plus it's a native macro).  I'm not entirely
sure what the difference is, but I put the AC_ one in my
and it's now working very nicely once again.

As always, thanks muchly to this list for the tons of feedback and
assistance.  Hopefully you guys can make use of the mingw-w64 project
when this is all over.
