OK, so I committed the patch attached below.

I know about 3 different Woe32 environments (though I don't use any):
1) Cygwin
2) MinGW
3) MinGW + MSYS

1) Cygwin doesn't have the 8.3 limitation.
2) MinGW proper doesn't have any POSIX shell, so it cannot run configure.

3) There is an MSYS build of bash.  Though MinGW/MSYS is not ready
to run Autoconf, you can use it to unpack a tarball and run ./configure
Is it possible that ./configure will then run in the 8.3 environment?
I don't know and that is why I am not ready to drop the 8.3 support from
generated ./configure.

Have a nice day,
