Hi Ralf,

Could we test if test -x works and use that? I know that this is barely used, but it bugs me that test -f does not test for the executable bit :)

I think autoconf has this:

if test -x / >/dev/null 2>&1; then
  as_executable_p='test -x'
 as_executable_p='test -f'

I seem to recall that with some versions of the MSYS shell 'test -x' pretends to work (but does not). It is best to make sure before depending on it. Some systems don't support the notion of 'executable' files.
