I was thinking of something more modest, namely to change
nt/configure.bat to copy the needed rules from
lib/gnulib.mk to lib/Makefile.  This step wouldn't
all need to be done in configure.bat; it could be
precomputed on a POSIXish platform, if the Windows tools
aren't up to doing what 'sed' can do.  Ideally lib/makefile.w32-in
could just say "include gnulib.mk" but it might need
to include a modified version of gnulib.mk instead.

But if the plan is to port 'configure' to Windows perhaps
this idea would be a distraction.
