What does the config.log say ?

My configure has

  for ac_exec_ext in '' $ac_executable_extensions; do
  if $as_executable_p "$as_dir/$ac_word$ac_exec_ext"; then
    echo "$as_me:$LINENO: found $as_dir/$ac_word$ac_exec_ext" >&5
    break 2

which clearly uses $ac_exec_ext ?.

autoconf version 2.59

On MinGW, the pnet configuration script locates AR correctly, but erroneously uses the file path without trailing .exe extension. The path (e.g. /mingw/bin/ar) is then included in cscc/cpp/Makefile and installation fails when an attempt is made to create a link from that path (w/o .exe extension) - fortunately this behaviour is not evident on Cygwin.

Temporary workaround is to set the SYSTEM_AR variable to AR path (with extension, i.e. /mingw/bin/ar.exe) before running the configuration script.
