I've been using *-*-msvcXX to designate microsoft compiler-based host

This really saved our bacon at work when we switched from VizStudio 2003
to 2005; the different host triple allowed us to keep old/new stuff
separate which was important during the transition, as they couldn't be
linked together due to the different runtime requirements. (Plus, the
2003 stuff didn't need any of that .manifest crap, and couldn't
understand it anyway, while it was required for the 2005 stuff).

Hi Charles,

What did you use as $build? Did you use any glue like cccl to use MSVC
with the gnu tools?

I suspect libtool will have to deal with this too -- wouldn't it be good
have the .manifest-related code active only when -msvc80 or above?

I embed the manifest if a .manifest file is generated.
