I don't think that it should be the function of winsup's configure to
ensure that the build environment which surrounds it is ok.  Cygnus
provides a build environment.  If you don't want to use it, then you
take your lumps.

If you're going to check for ../newlib, then you should check for
../libiberty and ../include, too.  Do we really want to go down that
path?
