Should Cygwin gcc -o always append .exe?

While building OpenLDAP 2.0.11, I stumbled across an issue with Cygwin
gcc -o that can be characterized by the following:
$ gcc -o in.foo foo.c
$ ls in.foo*
I expected that in.foo.exe would have been created instead of in.foo.
The Makefile for in.xfingerd expected this behavior too and failed during
Should Cygwin gcc be changed to resolve this issue or should OpenLDAP
