Is there a better way to tell configure to look for the
x86_64-w64-mingw32 tools?  Without that host, configure uses the cygwin
tools, which I don't want.  If I specify --host=bulldozer-w64-mingw32,
then configure looks for a compiler called bulldozer-w64-mingw32, which
doesn't exists so it falls back to cygwin gcc.
