The reason I put this into CC not CFLAGS, is that this particular flag
actually turns the compiler into more-or-less a cross-compiler. As such,
"gcc" and "gcc -mno-cygwin" are different compilers as far as the autotools
are concerned. It is therefore critical that gcc is never invoked
without -mno-cygwin, whatever happens to CFLAGS. Therefore I believe my
choice, whilst counter-intuitive, is correct.
