Even if cross-compilation currently doesn't work (and I'm not sure
either way), I think there's no harm removing one obstacle on its way.

I'm modifying the Emacs Posix configury to be able to produce the
MinGW build. As a side effect, I'm reading the docs of every autoconf
macro that I didn't use before (which is quite a lot ;-), to make sure
I understand what I'm doing. In this case, I was surprised to see
AC_CHECK_TOOL instead of AC_CHECK_PROG, so I looked it up.
I will wait for autoconf experts here to chime in, before making the
change to use AC_CHECK_TARGET_TOOL on the trunk.
