At first crack, --with-gnu-ld does nothing to change the outcome.
We're still trying to use cygpath and getting a cygpath not found
error instead of using $(CYGPATH_W), which is still set to echo.

Interestingly, with_gnu_ld="no" still appears in the bfd/libtool
script.  Does the --with-gnu-ld option not do what I think it does?
