I assigned it to myself, but here's the more general plea/explanation on
why fixing this is important... It's not really a problem for Cygwin
only. In general the gcc toolset, and most others, don't do what the
msvc and other Windows toolsets of doing precommand setup. It's a
general pattern that it seems to me should be handled generically like
the CONFIG_COMMAND var. Regardless... I'm fine with doing this myself ;-)
