Can't argue about that, but you should never end up looking for
"link" if you have nm on your path, so that's a red herring in
my opinion. If the nm locator code is fixed, this is a non-issue.
Further, if nm is not on $PATH, it doesn't make any sense to
set NM=nm.
Here's a patch that makes the configure check a bit more picky
about what it recognizes as "dumpbin". As it happens, the MS
dumpbin outputs:

Microsoft (R) COFF/PE Dumper Version x.yy.zzzzz.www

as its first line of output, so I'm triggering on *COFF*

With this patch, the old fallback (NM=nm) should kick in and
save you.

Does this help?

(But it just papers over the real bug IMHO)
