Unfortunately, this isn't necessarily good to have as a default setting,
since putting .dll in $FIGNORE will disable completion in all cases, not
just when searching for an executable. In other words, if you have a file
foo.dll, and try to get gcc to link with it while having .dll in $FIGNORE,
typing in "gcc blah.c foo<TAB>" will not produce a match with foo.dll
(same with "cp", etc). If there were a way to restrict .dll completion
*only* for cases when an executable is needed, that would be a good
candidate for a default setting.
