What I meant was that we would want to use the discovered value in relevant
places in the build scripts (for example, when setting the path for the tests
in the testsuite). But if we found ':' because DJGPP's bash happens to support
it, some of those scripts may still break, as they wouldn't necessarily be
shell scripts (and might support only ';').
