We already have a facility for handling this: the tests/config-flags.pm.in file.  I've updated it to include the "ar" program; the fix will be in the next release of GNU make.  Thanks!

With our cross-compiling toolchain, the `archive` test fails, because `ar` doesn't exist, only ${host}-ar.

The attached patch turns the archive test into a `.in` file and fills in the correct ar at configure time.
