I think winsup's configure needs to know if it's building with a local
version of newlib et al, and use it directly if so, rather that use
newlib's libc.a (via libcygwin.a) but the installed cross compiler's

For building winsup and winsup/utils, I think we must.  That's the
library we link against (via libcygwin.a), those should be the headers
we include.
