Why ?  The separate mingw-configure shell  script isn't used for the
RPM build packaging, and as such shouldn't be applying RPM filesystem
layout policy, just the minimal flags to cross-compile suitably. In
same way as native %configure overrides everything to apply RPM policy,
but plain 'configure' uses the apps default policy.
