[tlbuild] Static linking of C++ library no longer working in cygwin build

Hi Peter,

I've just discovered that static linking of the C++ runtime library 
stopped working in my cygwin build.  I found the following in 

configure:5017: checking for statically linking C++ runtime library
configure:5059: g++-4 -o conftest.exe -Wno-write-strings -Wno-attributes 
  -Wl,--enable-auto-import -Wl,--enable-runtime-pseudo-reloc 
conftest.cpp  -nodefaultlibs -Wl,-Bstatic -lstdc++ -Wl,-Bdynamic -lm 
-lgcc_eh -lgcc -lc -lgcc_eh -lgcc >&5
configure:5102: result: not supported

So the special cygwin test that you put into kpse-cxx-hack.m4 isn't 
being used.  Could the problem be that $host is not defined during the 
teckit configuration?

I've been building with the -C option, so the "not supported" result is 
cached and the test is never done again.
