The only place where this condition is used is grub-mkrescue. Which other programs do you mean?

For Cygwin, have_exec should be y instead of n. As a consequence of being n, grub-mkrescue and some other programs are not compiled. A simple patch is attached. After patching grub-mkrescue compiles and runs without problem.
