Interestingly, having recently configured 1.1.0c on a windows system,
something printed out a warning to the effect of "you seem to not have
nmake.exe on your path; you probably want to install it or dmake to
continue" (even though nmake was usable from that cmd.exe prompt!). 
Searching, though, it seems that this is an artifact of some upstream
perl module rather than Configure itself, so it's unclear how reliably
we can prevent it from appearing or modify it to match our requirements
more closely.
