You are mixing up two issues here: The exeext being appended to a
compiler's output (This is a tool's feature) and the exeext that
executables on a host carry (This is a host's feature).

These are two separate issues with absolutely no relation inbetween.
A linux->cygwin cross compiler appends ".exe" to executables it
produces, while the compiler itself doesn't use '.exe'.

IMO, this is not an interim fix, but the nominal way to use it.
