You're right. When I was using the LT_PATH_NM macro from libtool git master,
I got so heavily confused by the misleading output that I forgot to look at
the actual value of NM. I confirm that NM gets set to 'nm' and
GLOBAL_SYMBOL_PIPE get set to a working value.

I withdraw my proposed patch.

The remaining problems with the output are that

  checking for BSD- or MS-compatible name lister (nm)... no
  checking for i586-pc-mingw32-dumpbin... no
  checking for i586-pc-mingw32-link... no
  checking for dumpbin... no
  checking for link... link -dump
  checking the name lister (nm) interface... BSD nm

1) The "checking for link... link -dump" made me think that the 'link'
   program was being used for DUMPBIN. Initially it is, but later
   DUMPBIN is set to ':'.
2) The "checking for BSD- or MS-compatible name lister (nm)... no" made
   me think it would ignore the 'nm' program. Initially it does,
   but later it sets NM to 'nm' anyway.
