This year issue with patch (use more compatible autotools based build
system for windows hosts) is closed with resolution "Not GNOME" (!).

I would suggest splitting the patch into different ones that only handle one issue 
at a time, and then sending them here to be reviewed.  Hopefully this is the preferred
method for libxml.

I can however point out that at least the $(EXEEXT) bits might be bogus, as it would
seem to only affect things if cross-compiled to win32 on a non-win32 host.  Here on
a Windows host with MSYS it works fine, as the convenience wrappers have a .exe
extension.  So it might rather be a libtool issue when cross-compiling, although I
do not have that much experience in this field.
