We could create a macro in init.sh that needs to be used when invoking a
program, but I think it would be as error-prone as $EXEEXT (it needs to
be used at all places that invokes a built program, just like $EXEEXT)
only uglier -- after all, use of $EXEEXT is quite widespread and well

If it is possible to portable, it would be nice.  But I don't think the
cost of supporting $EXEEXT is that extreme -- the problem is easy to
detect by doing builds using MinGW/Wine which I'm already doing.
