Is it feasible to run these tests, particularly the Windows ones, on
the GNU make 4.3 release package?  I'd just like to make sure I didn't
make things significantly worse there.  There was some puttering with
backslashes recently that _shouldn't_ have made any difference but...

I suppose at some point I'll have to figure out how to work with
Cygwin.  I don't have access to a Windows system where I'm free to
install whatever I want unfortunately.  About all I can easily test is
compiling with MSVC using the build_w32.bat script.  I could remove the
MinGW shutils from my PATH and get the suite working without them but I
don't want to undertake that for this release.
