I tested the latest pretest.  There are two problems:

 . The test in configure that decides whether to install the *.bat
   files looks at the $target variable:

     case "$target" in
        *-mingw32 | *-mingw64 | *-msdosdjgpp )  tgt_is_windows=yes ;;
      if test "x$tgt_is_windows" = "xyes"; then

   However, this doesn't work as intended, because $target is empty,
   unless I explicitly invoke the configure script with --target=; if
   I invoke with --build=i686-pc-mingw32, as I normally do, the value
   is empty.  Did I use an incorrect variable?

 . If I use --target=, the test works, but "make install" fails
   because the *.bat files were not included in the tarball.
