The decoupling is not 100%, although it comes close.  In addition to
nt/gnulib.mk, sometimes nt/mingw-site.cfg needs tweaking to get the
configure script DTRT for the Windows build.

I don't know how to automate this, since human judgment is required to
decide whether a given addition to lib/gnulib.mk needs to be copied to
nt/gnulib.mk.  But maybe at least a message with reminder that this
should be considered would be a good thing to add to
