configure fails early on, trying to find ld. A log of the run shows an extra
^M has appeared as result of a command substitution. This is about line 2732
in my (somewhat out of date) configure script.

  ac_prog=`($CC -print-prog-name=ld) 2>&5`
+ echo configure:2732: checking for ld used by GCC
+ ac_prog=ld^M

This really puzzles me, since there are plenty of command substitutions
occuring prior to this point that all behave normally. I'm also surprised
that no one else has reported this problem. Note that the above text is
copied/pasted from a DOS-format file, so all of the lines have \r\n
terminators already. This particular problem line has an extra \r, which
shows up in all of the successive path tests, which all fail...

Running current cygwin B20.1 with latest mingw32 (gcc 2.95, etc.) in the
front of the path, overriding any cygwin-supplied utils of the same name.
