Nope.  That would be a bug :-(

!!  Do you know why that happens?

Nope.  I merged the multi-language branch into the trunk after 1.4 was
released.  1.4b has the merged code, but there are still several warts.

1.3b had its own code to detect EXEEXT, but this code was migrated to
autoconf and improved.  You might get further if you upgrade to a
newer autoconf... but 1.4 is still lacking multi-language support.

1.4 won't help much there I'm afraid... though it does fix many bugs
from 1.3b.
