Let me rephrase this:

How can I configure gcc to not add the .exe?

(I am hoping that I don't have to diff the cygwin source to find where
this was changed. By the way, where do I download the files like shown at

This will not work for me. I'd prefer to not add a trailing period to

I'd prefer not too.

Where is gcc configured or patched to add the ".exe" in the first place?
