Having two files with the same name in directory. One file without

I want patch "configure".
During patch Cygwin delete "configure.exe" and I have only "configure".
do not use two files in the same directory with and
without ".exe" extension
Regardless, Cygwin should not go deleting the .exe when the basename
file exists. A work-around may be to append a '.' character to the
end of the file name. I've used this method in the past but have not
tested it with recent Cygwin's.
The workaround is "do not do it".
For cygwin "configure.exe" is also "configure", trying to outsmart this
fact is prone to failure.
