Madsy told me that the only problem he had when cross-compiling e1bb79f
was in c-tokenize.c.  He worked around it by simply removing "#include
<config.h>" from that file.  gen-scmconfig.c was not a problem.

The specific problem was that c-tokenize.c includes <stdlib.h>,
but gen-scmconfig.c doesn't include <stdlib.h>.

I agree that this is fragile and should be reworked somehow, but for
2.0.10, I wonder if we could just revert the part of 8cb0d6d having to
do with gen-scmconfig.c.

What do you think?

My impression is that we can't rely on this level of help from Madsy, at
least not in the short term.

Didn't do MinGW cross-builds of Guile in the past?
If so, what happened to those?
