#1570 closed defect (fixed)

MinGW: configure script doesn't clean up afterwards

The configure script doesn't clean up after itself when running it under MinGW. I don't have a complete list of files that are left behind, but at least the following ones:

tmp_cxx_compiler.exe tmp_endianness_check.exe tmp_find_type_with_size.exe /tmp/scummvm-conf.exe

The pattern is quite obvious: the script doesn't know that under MinGW it needs to add .exe to the name of the executable file it wants to remove.

So essentially, the configure script should use something like EXEEXT in the Makefile, a variables which is set to ".exe" on Windows/DOS and to nothing everywhere else. And then this rm -f tmp_endianness_check tmp_endianness_check.cpp is changed to this: rm -f tmp_endianness_check$(EXEEXT) tmp_endianness_check.cpp

Clearly, this should be done by somebody who can actually test whether the solution works ... :-)

At the very least, it works much better now. I don't have the time right now to check if it's completely fixed.

It still leaves /tmp/scummvm-conf.exe
