The best way to speed up configure on Windows '98 is to upgrade to a
newer version of Windows. :-)

Quite seriously, Windows '98 is *terrible* at spawning subprocesses,
particularly since it must constantly update the DOS window with the
name of the currently running program.  The only way to make configure
run significantly faster under Windows '98 is to put the configure
script on a diet so it doesn't execute so many commands.
