Does clang have a chance to know where to look for LINK.EXE, or does
it just have to assume it's in the path?

I've run into some problems when I had gnuwin32's link.exe (which
creates filesystem links) in the path -- I eventually had to rename it
to glink.exe.

Just a heads-up if someone does work on this.
