I would also strongly favor option 2, since gnulib recently documented
that it will only target Interix with suacomp installed:


In other words, suacomp is not deemed a burden for that platform, and
Interix without suacomp is unsupported by the very gnulib code you are
trying to use to work around Interix deficiencies.
