Aha ... that thing printed by `emacs-version' or `system-configuration'.
It's "i686-pc-mingw32" here.  Couldn't you try to write a function that
provides more meaningful information here?  I always consider w32 bug
reports inferior to the ones for GNU/Linux which IMHO are not entirely
optimal either.  Basically, it would be fine to have one function that
gets me, in a nicely formatted way,

- the operating system,
- the revision number,
- the build options,
- the build environment,
- the date of the build

that is, most of the things you asked for.
