I do not understand.  What is the command that generates your ".exe" files?
And what is the command that does not generate them?

It is something else.  backupsuffix is the extension (usually ".OLD", with
a dot) to add when updating your INN.  Previous files are backuped with
that extension added at the end of their name.

The relevant part is the following lines in install-sh:

  # For Cygwin compatibility (added for INN).
  if [ -x "$src".exe ]; then

Then I assume it does not work the way it should (?)
