EXEEXT messing up extension substitutions on win32.

My make distcheck fails on Windows because of the following:

check_PROGRAMS = \
                 simple                 \
                 xml-simple             \
                 parentness             \
                 destroy                \
                 rm_all_trans           \
                 unblock_all            \
                 bug16                  \
[..._SOURCES and stuff]
TESTS = $(check_PROGRAMS:=.test)

        for i in $(TESTS); do \
          $(LN_S) -f $(top_srcdir)/build-aux/ $$i || exit 1; \

EXTRA_DIST = $(TESTS:.test=.stdout)

Automake automagically appends $EXEEXT (=.exe on Win32) to the check_PROGRAMS
which entails that TESTS = simple.exe.test etc.. instead of simple.test etc..

make dist then looks for simple.exe.stdout (etc) instead of simple.stdout (etc).

I tried several things such as
TESTS = $(check_PROGRAMS:$(EXEEXT)=.test)
( check_PROGRAMS:$(EXEEXT: non-POSIX variable name) although it
seems to work [with GNU make] (but I doubt the resulting Makefile is portable)

TESTS = $(check_PROGRAMS:$EXEEXT=.test)
TESTS = $(check_PROGRAMS:${EXEEXT}=.test)
(Both generated Makefile contains: TESTS = $(check_PROGRAMS) which is obviously

So what's The Right Way of writing this?
