Sorry, what does this have to do with mingw?  Why would we guess yes for (say) 

Instead, please guess no by default, and guess yes only on OpenBSD hosts.

Oh good point.
I thought it might have some unmentioned significance on mingw
but it's probably a copy & paste issue (from roundf.m4?),
especially since "guessing yes" would have never matched the
subsequent check anyway. I'll merge this in...

Sorry - that was my mistake (indeed, copy&pasted from m4/stat.m4).

If I understand correctly, that part is relevant for cross-compiling.
On second thought, I think it's better to "guess no" for all systems -
since even for OpenBSD, most versions have a functioning 'expl' (this bug has 
already been fixed in their main repository, I believe) - perhaps even remove 
this part all-together?
