Would it be better if we had our own version of autoconf that when it was
dealing with a cygwin target set tooldir appropriately? And yes I am
We could then autoconf the packages that referred to this directory and
release a new tar ball and source for those packages. Also if a user had
complained of a third-party package that was errantly placing files in
/usr/i686-pc-cygwin, we could direct him to:
./configure --prefix=/usr i686-pc-cygwin
Which isn't that abnormal anyway.
