Support for Interix 5.2 and 6.0?

libtool support for Interix 3.5 aka Microsoft Services for Unix is great. Unfortunately it currently only works for Interix 3.5, not for the 5.2 version included in Windows Server 2003 R2, and not for the 6.0 version included in Vista.

Basically, building the libs is the same, but recent config.guess recognizes 2003 R2 as "i586-pc-interix5.2" and Vista as "i586-pc-interix6.0", while libtool.m4 only checks for "interix3*".

I now did s/interix3/interix/ on libtool.m4, followed by ./bootstrap followed by ./configure and make on 2003 R2.

make check test results are as follows:
FAIL: hardcode.test
1 of 112 tests failed
Please report to address@hidden

This is exactly as with Interix 3.5.

So please consider doing s/interix3/interix/ on libtool.m4 before releasing 1.5.23. This may have some impact on Interix 2.x, but as 3.5 is now available for free and 3.0 should work as before, it shouldn't matter that much.

Thank you very much
